Pros

Great opportunity to work directly with students who were highly motivated. Career centered education lends itself to hands on experiences. Lifetime career if you find it rewarding. Good salary, great job security

Cons

Bureaucracy tends to undermine individual successes. Rules and regulations often overtake student concern. Some employees are to “career centered”. Structure is slow or reluctant to change.

Advice to Management

Change is not the enemy. Listen to the people in the trenches they have the day to day experience with the students.

    I worked at State of Connecticut full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay is beyond excellent. Vacation time and sick time can be used without issue and supervisors are very respectful and establish long relationships

    Cons

    Staff can be very negative and alpha male mentality due to the super Max environment and inmates. Very stressful facility and takes a toll after many years

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the front line officers, include front line staff in daily meetings and not make staff feel that administrator is out to get them

    Cons

    Starting salaries are not competitive with private companies . Application process is too long. Departments do not get back to you in a timely manner or at all.
