    I have been working at Corizon Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's an excellent job to work at if you like intensity and using your brain instead of just typing in orders and writing scripts at a random doctors office. The staff and management are great!!!! They really work as a team and they truly love what they do
    Will miss them all so much... relocating due to family reasons but will miss them all
    Pay is good and no weekend rounds only call every other weekend

    Cons

    It takes some time to get inmates seen in the mornings due to custody issues but if you get to know custody staff and make friends with them , they will help and in turn bend over backwards for medical!
    You have to be proactive and respectful and their is nothing that can't be accomplished
    If your a physician that loves helping and loves using your clinical knowledge you'll love this place

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a good job! The new HSA is amazing and knows corrections and extensive medical knowledge
    dON is helpful as well and very nice
    Can't say nothing bad

    Company has been improving the last 2 years. Small but better.

    Cons

    Need more contracts , new management view. Better options

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Being part of the solution for states and counties struggling with providing healthcare to inmates, and the opportunity to make a difference in someone's life.

    Cons

    The company is usually made out to be a villain in the press and friends and family don't always"get" why you'd want to work in corrections. There's sometimes an assumption that you must not be good enough to make it in the "real world."

    Advice to Management

    Only work with clients that understand that good care costs a little more and are willing to pay for it.

    I have been working at Corizon Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employment versus being unemployed. Some of the staff is great to work with. The inmates are more respectful than management. There are very little pros other than a paycheck.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Management are friends so they're not able to be objective. If you are lazy and dodge work this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Get mature Leadership. The current leadership is very dysfunctional

    Pros

    Over all great group of employees committed to getting the job done right.

    Cons

    Executive leadership really seems to be out of touch with employee and client needs; not enough accountability to get things done correctly; not enough transparency by management to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be in tune better with employee needs; hold employees accountable; make employees feel valued.
