    I worked at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment.
    Employees are helpful and Officers are great to work with.
    Good medical/dental/vision/401k/PTO
    Pay is pretty competitive.

    Cons

    Some higher up HR staff don't listen to the advice of the facilities Nursing Directors and great staff can end up losing their job over something that they didn't do!
    The turnover rate of nurses is high as corrections is not for everyone.
    Five 8-hour shifts instead of three 12's.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so fast to get rid of great people for a tardy here or there. Family dynamics are changing and sometimes things happen that cause a person to run a little late- not a good enough reason to punish someone. Instead of a negative points system (for tardies, etc.) you should implement a positive points system where when an employee earns x-number of points over a certain time period for NO TARDIES or NO CALL OUTS- that person gets rewarded extra hours of PTO or a small raise??? The ones who are tardy may then strive to be on time for that raise or REWARD!!! Good Nursing jobs are not so hard to come by- Good Nurses are!

    I worked at Armor Correctional Health Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good hours of employment and potential for advancement within the company. The work outline policy of my position was very clear.

    Cons

    Administration may attempt to pile more work on it's employees when the contractor is to perform the duties.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees and keep them in a safe environment. Don't sacrifice the safety of staff to keep a contract. Have an open door policy with your staff members. The Department of Corrections NEEDS to adhere to their portion of the contract.

    Pros

    None, they don't care about their employees

    Cons

    Management does not care about their employees, employee retention, very poor communication

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your nursing staff, follow your own rules, praise your staff instead of always reprimanding, promote employee retention instead of always hiring new employees and you would have a higher profit margin
