    I worked at Correctional Healthcare Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being a person who stays away from drama I really enjoyed working with the correctional care employees rather than the medical staff. I can honestly say that I enjoyed the fact that everyday was much different than the next,, that excited me and motivated me. It was a great experience of an autonomy type of nursing, good thing I had years of experience under my belt.

    Cons

    All chiefs and no indians. Chain of command? Never around when you needed them, Training was a joke. Very unprofessional DON / ADON. Everyone was always afraid they were going to lose their job as they were phasing out Positions and placing nurses in positions where you had to work impossible hours and days that your family life schedule would not permit. Don't count on a raise of any sort. Very pollitical. This starts at the top "corporate", which was very unorganized from support and following through with their promises of personal growth, etc etc. I am surprised that CHC still holds the contract.

    Advice to Management

    Try being attentive, supportive and able to follow up with your promises of productive change, instead of apologizing for the unproductive changes that frequently occurred . If you are good to your employees, in turn they will be productive for you. Quit managing your company so disorganized and unprofessional, what starts at the top (corporate).reflects in the medical management. This is why you have an ongoing issue with good productive and loyal employees staying with the company.

    I worked at Correctional Healthcare Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary was good. Staff was good to work with

    Cons

    Too many roadblocks to doing your job properly. Company wanted to tell prescribers what meds they could prescribe (the cheaper ones). Corporate office offered no training or proper guidance. It was all up to the site. You had to learn as you went along. Training program is non-existent. Support is non-existent. All they care about is getting the contract renewed and have little or no interest in the employees. Not a place to grow and feel supported. Very political.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time at the sites and get to know how the job is done. Support the people out there doing the job. Get a better benefits package. Insurance benefits very poor.

    Pros

    Good compensation.
    Good work-life balance, although it can vary depending on which business unit you work for.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and clarity due to many changes in the upper management roles
    New Management is hardly in the office, and does not seem to understand the business

    Advice to Management

    Appoint senior leaders who care enough to learn about the business. Make them visit the jails and prisons in order to make effective decisions.
