Approves of CEO

I have been working at Corrections Corporation of America full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

CCA provides upward mobility for the motivated and excellent employee, and good basic jobs for those with less motivation and ambition.

Cons

The wages are fairly low for the level of responsibility that is given.
Communication of facility issues on a strictly "need to know" basis is very frustrating. One feels very disconnected from the workings of the prison when one's only resource for news is the "grapevine."

Advice to Management

Be more transparent about news and happenings in your facilities. Get rid of the minority of employees who don't care and who treat inmates poorly.

    I worked at Corrections Corporation of America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    paycheck, support of colleagues within the department, officers were supportive when there were any threats

    Cons

    did not support employees job responsibilities with necessary resources. pay was not correlated to state guidelines for educators. security warden did not care that education was operating in some cases (annex location) without any officer support.

    Advice to Management

    get an idea of what the people working under you actually do and are supposed to do. it's hard to educate inmates that cannot get to class.
