      I worked at Georgia Department of Corrections full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Pay Health Benefits Tact squad

      Cons

      Can’t trust everyone Too many work place relationships

      Advice to Management

      If someone is performing above and beyond promote them don’t hold them back. The pay has gotten a little better but it could be much better. The work place relationships need to stop and come up with a program to build healthier officers.
