    I worked at GEO Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The nature of the work is interesting, and the good employees are really good. The benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Mostly, the staff consists of disgruntled and poorly trained counselors who don't have the money to leave the area and hate their job. The pay is low and employee are lazy and just don't give a hoot. The atmosphere is beyond depressing. They are constantly hiring and must be in the VIP program with the local newspaper want ad section.

    Advice to Management

    The Therapeutic Community needs a real director who actually cares a teeny bit about the program. It's all about lining his pockets and taking vacations.

    I worked at GEO Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The overtime was nice here when the state had none. They hired some good people as well making it fairly enjoyable.

    Cons

    They as a company really do not care about your safety or input. Even if its wrong, they are always looking for a fall guy putting a huge stress on all of the officers shoulders. The pay is also a lot less than the state employees get for doing the same job.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to the men and women on the ground and stop looking at statistics to set policy and the company will run so much more smooth.
