    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Corrections Corporation of America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent facility, for the most part inmates treated with respect, made some good friends there, historic area on Mississippi River

    Cons

    Inadequate training, content of training wasn't as important as checking off the box that it was done, NO RAISES sine the inception of the prison in Natchez, MS and no prospect of raise in the future, relocated thinking MS was an inexpensive state to live - not so!, low morale among staff, constant talk at all levels of losing contract and shutting down, people who are from the area feel stuck as there are no other... options for employment (which is why CCA doesn't increase pay, they have a captive employment pool...), obsessed focus on recurring audits

    Advice to Management

    Job descriptions very misleading, give people deserved raises - they are working a high risk job, compensate them accordingly, focus less on dollars - your greatest resource is your people, treat them as such!
