    I have been working at CA Prison Health Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is interesting and fun - I love the busy environment and how you can do so much. Union has your back so you are safe and taken care of.

    Cons

    Politics - everyone is super petty. Don't you dare ask anyone to do their job - they'll cut you down. I asked a coworker to help me find one of her cases and she made my life hell. Not to mention most people are incompetent. Your coworkers and bosses will mostly be in their 50's or 60's, and no matter how many times you explain it, do not understand what a URL is or what "double-click" means on a computer. I thought it was just my office, but I've been in several now and it's all hell. You will end up doing EVERYONE's job, and no promotion or anything, because they are trying to save money and when they do layoffs you are the FIRST to go because they rely entirely on seniority, not on who can actually do their job. This is a perfect job if you are worthless and can't do any work anyways - you'll fit right in. But if you actually work hard and are intelligent - RUN!

    Advice to Management

    Work smarter, not harder. Layoffs should not be based on seniority, but people who do their work. So fire the people who suck, and promote the employees who actually give their all. Honestly this would be a great job if you got decent employees.

    Pros

    good benefits retirement plan reasonable vacation guaranteed job after probation

    Cons

    Nepotism, Friends hiring friends if you're not with the in crowd you won't have a job. Be careful what you say and who you say you too. Don't try to stand up for the medical benefit of the inmates that will harm you in the end also

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of them all start anew
