    I worked at Dade Correctional Institution full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay when you factor in the amount of over time you will do.

    Cons

    you will be doing a lot of over time if you are on a swing shift on a good week you will only do one 16 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    The leadership is caring of its people and strives to build a solid organization that incorporates a team approach. If you are looking to get into the sworn ranks, there are great opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations and timelines. A culture that admires long hours at the office, even though there are no real signs of productivity. A management culture that seeks an illusionary state of perfection although most would not recognize it if they ever saw it. This illusion transforms into a state of vegetation where nothing moves forward. There is a familiar saying, "the wheels of government turn, but they turn slowly." At Corrections, they come to a halt. Who pays for this: Tax Payers.

    Advice to Management

    Studies have shown that there is a positive correlation between a bad supervisor and poor health. Working for a bad boss can increase your likelihood of coronary dysfunctions. Management has a duty to understand this concept and strive to align and building good leaders. This is created not only by attending an outrageous amount of training, which it does, but to measure training through employee assessments. Management needs to hire competent people, hold them accountable, and then step back and measure results not processes. Some processes are understandably less flexible, especially when federal guidelines are at play, but achievement and compliance of objectives can be obtained through innovation and personal styles. Too much time is wasted in trying to get a work product to conform to one style of writing, etc.
