    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Georgia Department of Corrections full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Starting pay 28,000, ability to advance very quickly, lots of avenues to move into, lots of vacation time, sick time, holidays

    Cons

    Extremely understaffed, frequently work overtime on salary, asked to do things against policy, but when kaka hits the fan you will be fired, terrible disconnection between upper management and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites, treat everyone equally, be more organized, stop pretending you dont have serious problems going on in prison. Stop covering up issues.
