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

    Pros

    This is a really nice place to work. Ihave worked in many different aspects of the nursing field and this by far is my favorite. If you can get past the fact that you are taking care of criminals in a jail, these are some of the reasons I like it here:
    No micromanagement
    Full support from management
    Safe environment
    Very laid back
    Feels like working with your family
    Everybody seems nice
    Doctors are onsite to give orders

    Cons

    You are locked in the facility
    Can't bring your cellphone to work
    Everyone is not fully knoweledgeable

    I have been working at Corizon Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great and the pay is competitive. I get exposure to every department. There are tons of people there that will help you develop your skills. Sr management does a wonderful job keeping everyone informed. I'm pleased to work here.

    Cons

    There was a merger in June of 2011. There are still a few "bad apples" left that refuse to embrace the change. They can be incredibly frustrating at times, but those who refuse to adapt keep slowly disappearing. If they aren't in line with the new vision then they will be replaced when appropriate....as I have already seen this happen. It's a good thing though. To everyone else they just seem lazy, unhappy, and entitled. It's a good thing that they leave in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your staff to place weight on new candidates' potential. Often times inexperienced professionals get turned away, but there are so many eager people who are willing to learn and will become superb performers and HUGE assets to our team. Sometimes they're better hires than experienced professionals who are set in their ways.

    Pros

    Very different job with a variety of health care needed by patients (inmates.) Great salary! Amazing benefits! Love working with correctional staff and a nice break from everyday healthcare jobs.

    Cons

    Nurses with very strong personalities (which is fine if you have a backbone), must keep up guard for safety reasons at all times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I have been nothing but pleased here. Great experience thus far.

    Pros

    Great manager and CEO with clear direction, the upside for the company is right around the corner.

    Cons

    B2B sales are sluggish due to internal conflict...once this hurdle is taken care of the upside is great

    Advice to Management

    Understand that this is a multimodal, mulitdirectional, multiasset company that needs to diversify talent, resources, and assets

    Don't get the respect we deserve from media as they often times don't report the positive outcomes that occur within our company.

    Pros

    Friendly work environment. Leadership is there for us, feedback is welcome, never afraid to brain storm ideas for team improvement

    Cons

    Not enough staff, could easily double our forces to get near to meeting our contract obligations. Promised to client more than physically possible to attain under current staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Please advocate for more staff. We want to succeed, but demands are way higher than manpower.
