    I worked at GEO Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Diverse company with many opportunities for upward mobility.

    Cons

    Too large a company with too few middle level positions for advancement. Likely to employ retired professionals to fill internal promotional level positions.

    Advice to Management

    Great company but management should keep an open mind and allow for more advancement from within the company.

    I have been working at GEO Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The non-management employees are usually a good group of people to work with. I have come across a couple of exceptions.

    Cons

    The corporate management at GEO are a bunch of bullies. I have witnessed a couple of directors and managers verbally and physically abuse their employees. Unfortunately, the employees are paid off to keep quiet about it so nothing ever gets done about it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop abusing employees. Get some leadership skills and get out of the business of bullying people. Strive to create an ethical workplace. Get some morals and values.

    I have been working at GEO Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stability, this company just makes money from inmates, there is no product so they just make money. We do get more holidays off than average I'd say. Pay can be good. Most employees have been given some stock options.

    Cons

    This company has terrible communication and when you mention this in a meeting, you just get blank stares. Some people have been with them or with a similar company their whole career so they don't have any perspective. If you have worked at a large, structured company, GEO might drive you crazy. Nepotism is quite common at Corporate, along with the usual politics. Most managers in my dept. have no degree and have received no mgmt. training, they think telling someone what to do is managing. In my dept., we have never received any training. My pay is below what the market pays and we have had several people hired for the same position making more. My manager did nothing to fix this. People working at the facilities usually receive low pay with not much opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Education! Put people in charge that know how to manage others, that know how to communicate. Realize that just because it's the way you've always done it, doesn't make it the right way.
