    Pros

    Great Company, Great Benefits and Lot's of opportunity to advancement if desired

    Contract work with state agencies so work history could be interrupted if new company does not pick you up. Hard to recruit for positions in regards to providers

    Develop new recruitment tools

    None, but this takes five words, so again, none.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Corizon Health full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Some great workers, fast paced environment, never boring and the pay was pretty good, especially when they were short staffed.

    Cons

    Constant staffing issues, very unethical management. Management refused to help in staffing crisis, most of the medical management staff were clueless and extremely lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Think about how people should be treated, try to be a leader and know how to be a problem solver at your sight instead of trying to cover things up, especially when they could put everyone’s safety at risk. Train staff properly for the correctional environment. Ethics training especially for the medical managers.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Corizon Health full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Excellent starting pay and benefits for unlicensed, mental healthcare staff (i.e., professional counselors, social workers, family therapists, and other M.S.-degreed practitioners). Opportunity to meet service-minded coworkers.

      Cons

      Contractual positions without the protection offered to actuall state/govt.-employed staff. Management primarily cares about pleasing stakeholders, not staff or clientele needs. Contract with the govt. agency has to be renewed, so unemployment is likely if Corizon fails to meet stakeholder's financial expectations. The govt. employees who you rely on for safety and navigating the facility (physically and culturally)...

      Advice to Management

      Assess contractual employee's vuews of how to improve cost efficiency and preventstive care and communicate that feedback to govt. stakeholders; fo mot solely jump when govt. agencies say "jump" without giving constructive feedback from the practitioners' perspectives

      Cons

      Upper management is horrible, lack of actual training. Back biting for absolutely no reason. Not following the ESG that was given at the time of hire that is signed by you and management. Very sneaky, always believing one side. You get wrote up for everything. If you accidentally punch in a minute late or early which rounds to 15 or 30 minutes. Your getting a verbal warning or written. Which underhanded goes into your...

      Advice to Management

      Stop being so shady, and looking at your job title as just another pay check and understand that it’s someone’s life that truly needs help on coping with addiction. DON’T CONTINUE TO MAKE THE MATTER WORSE!

      Pros

      Mission is admirable and needed

      Cons

      HR Executives lie constant and are not transparent. When the let people go for a financial layoff they say the employee is eligible for rehire but in fact is not when trying to bring back. The new CHRO is a liar who doesn’t not look into the real life scenarios of disrespect, disobedience and blatant illegal actions by senior leadership.

      Advice to Management

      Get a leadership team who cares about the mission and the employees. Get rid of Carolyn.
