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

Pros

Can't think of any at this time

Cons

Political, If your not in the right groups don't expect to get promoted. Over worked! IF you love overtime then you'll fit in because there's tons of mandatory overtime!!! Everyone comes here and several people by the time they've been here 2 or so months leave so we are always short on staff so the Correctional Officers suffer! Correctional officers are stuck working some weeks 5 out of the 7 days. Not Captains, Lieutenants, Correctional Counselors, Pretty much anyone besides Correctional officer!

Advice to Management

Consider raising the pay, making people besides just Correctional Officers work overtime. There are tons of things that people besides correctional officers can do! Pill call, count, different facility security checks. That will free up Officers and put them back into units.
