    I worked at Corizon Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Corizon is an interesting organization that is working to provide healthcare to an underserved population. Coworkers were great. Good benefits.

    Cons

    So focused on margins that it seems patient care comes second. Merger was a disaster. Lack of overall vision and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on resources for the field. Profits are important but do not lose sight of your mission. Need visionary leadership.

    Pros

    I love working for Corizon. I work in the substance abuse unit with the counselors and the offenders as a support person and I stay constantly busy and there is never a dull moment. The company has good benefits and does a good job trying to stay inline with what the state offers the corrections staff (although they do fall short on the many holidays the state employees get)

    Cons

    Corizon's pay is very low for what I do and unfortunately they do not base raises on performance. So a straight across the board 2% raise against medical insurance that goes up at least double that doesn't do anything but set you back.

    Advice to Management

    Base raises on the actual positions and performance of employees. PTO time is good but doesn't match the states. If the state doesn't work then the offenders aren't in groups or classes which means we have to show up to work and find something to do. What difference does it make to Corizon if we sit at home doing something productive or sit at work with nothing to do?

    Pros

    Nice coworkers, good salary and benefits

    Cons

    Management very uninvolved and uncaring about employees and patients. More worried about money not the health of patients. Pressured to cut corners. No training whatsoever! SERIOUSLY!!!! No support from management. Everything is extremely chaotic and disorganized!

    Advice to Management

    Better training is needed!!!!! Stop pressuring providers to cut corners on healthcare!

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits were great. Loved working with my team of nurses, doctors, NP, and mental health

    Cons

    Corporate Leadership. They really did not care about you as an employee or considered the struggles of the HSA, DON and others at our site.

    I worked at Corizon Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was great when I first started!

    Cons

    The company has been through quite some reorganization. As a result, people begin to focus on protecting their interests instead of the work at hand. Politics takes priority over projects. Corizon has a toxic culture that people enjoy finding fault of others. Finger pointing, whispering and talking people behind their back are the normal practices in the office. Lying about missed deadlines and covering up mistakes are the essential surviving skills at Corizon. I’m a person of color. And I have to say that this is the first company I have ever experienced prejudice at a work place.

    Advice to Management
