I have been working at SC Department of Juvenile Justice full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Lots of vacation and sick leave available. Also the retirement is very good. You also get an opportunity to help kids and their families.

Cons

Very high stress and even lower pay. Management does not take care of their employees. An example is we had to buy our own meal for the Christmas party, which was a training on mental health. If you work in a smaller county then it isn't too bad, but if you're in a high volume county get ready to be burned out in the first year.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees and show appreciation. Someone with 30 years of experience and a masters degree shouldn't be paid the same as someone with one year of experience and a Bachelor's.
