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

    Pros

    Slow at making needed changes. Allows employees who are resistant to change block opportunities for company advancement.

    Cons

    CCA is much better at managing the prisons than the federal or state governments. That is CCA's expertise, the governments do not have this experience. With CCA the governments have a contract price and work within a budget. If governments run the prisons it will be no different than the United States Postal System. There will be billion dollar its governments managing.

    Advice to Management

    Employ ethical, law abiding managers. If management sets the standard for honesty and ethical business practices, fires those who fail to live up to these standards, promotes those who demand ethical behaviors, the "trickle down" theory will prevail.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay depending on the contract and the facility you are located at.

    Cons

    Good ol' boy network Voluntold your staying late, when others are not required to at all. Prior experience does not warrant advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Give individuals with skills acquired in other positions (prior jobs) a chance to use them, instead of making everyone learn the CCA way. Visit with staff on the night shift, and not just when you have to " check the box."
