Approves of CEO

Pros

The company really believes in its products and is very involved in the community. They participate in all charity events in the community.

Cons

Once the economy turned, it went from slightly employee focused to completely bottom line focused. The attitudes towards employees soured. They are not believers in hiring from within.

Advice to Management

Invest in employees more. Provide more opportunities for employees to grown. Train employees to move within the ranks rather than leave them in positions and hire from the outside.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They are hiring at a time when others are not.

    Cons

    Where to start. Lack of Communication amongst management, management incompetency, tech support incompetency. Risk verse reward. 11 dollars an hour and constantly being exposed to MRSA and rather volatile inmates. No real room for advancement. Lack of raises. Several I work with havent received a raise since they have started about 16 months ago. Support from the company is pretty much non existent. If you need help or questions answered they the management basically hide in meetings to avoid it. The company pretty much hangs its correctional facility departments out to dry. Which is dangerous with maximum security inmates.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together, communicate with other departments and help them resolve situations that they are not able to resolve on their own computer problems and inmate accounts especially. If you had competition within the prison systems you would be out of business. As it stands you keep contracts with the facilities by offering large kickbacks.
