    I have been working at BI Incorporated full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Divisional Vice President has been there many years and cares deeply about the employee experience and is incredibly passionate about improving the lives of offenders. It is wonderful to work for a Company that's mission is to improve community public safety and to enhance the lives of probationers and parolees on community supervision and re-entering society. Great opportunity to work with a federal government customer. Beautiful new building in Boulder/Gunbarrel, CO. Flex-time opportunities

    Cons

    Career paths exist in many areas but not all, however, promotions from within occur for degreed and non - degreed professionals often.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive innovation in the Market!

    Getting foot in the door.

    Cons

    LOTS of Micromanaging here!!!

    Good people leave...

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to change and welcome new ideas. Better Communicate with employees on what is going on.-not all employees like to believe rumors. Look for positive employees who are willing to make the company better.

    I have been working at BI Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Regular 8-5 position.
    Some opportunities to work in the field and travel.
    Stepping stone for law enforcement, social work, or counseling.
    Ample opportunities

    Cons

    Inadequate compensation.
    No opportunities at obtaining pay raises outside of annual reviews.
    Corporate mindset ignores employee needs.
    Micro-management of employee time.

    Advice to Management

    Take stock in the treatment of employees, treating employees as inferiors and incompetents does not serve to increase productivity.

    I worked at BI Incorporated full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is no probation. No absence or tardiness policy. You get to interact with attorney's, Federal law enforcement officials, and the community. Promote based on how well your liked; not on your qualifications or ability. So, be a brown nosier.

    Cons

    absurdly low wages for the locality, extremely expensive medical - approx 400 a month, Management uses every dirty trick in the book to ensure that labor costs are low: tamper with time cards, put lies on your annual review to screw you out of a normal 3% raise, not allow you to take breaks, give you unreasonable deadlines to complete tasks, work up to 12 hour days, intimidate you if you speak up.

    Advice to Management

    Imagine yourself in the shoes of your employees, especially in San Francisco's high cost of living. Rent for a one bedroom apartment is nearly 3k a month, not counting other bills.

    I worked at BI Incorporated full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice. Nice new building.

    Cons

    Poor management. Very clicky groups. Phony people. Very hands off training. Minimal feedback of job performance. Parent company is slowly consuming the child company and business is slowing down.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job and be more involved with all members of the team not just the ones you like.

    I have been working at BI Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Many of the supervisors are encouraging of developing your talents.

    The new VP is genuinely kind and generous.

    There are improvements being made towards inter-departmental communication.

    Cons

    Technology used is out of date.

    A very apparent "this is the way its always been" mentality.

    Low expectations of job performance.

    Advice to Management

    Read everyone's job description, compare it to the tasks that they have indeed accomplished. Perhaps your lowest hanging fruit is the fact that few people really actually preform up to their job expectations.
