    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at GEO full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime available, C.O.'so stick together and back each other

    Cons

    Too much mandatory overtime, little focus on C.O. safety, low pay, chain of command seldom supports C.O., more detention than corrections

    Advice to Management

    Pay a few dollars more to keep and retain C.O.'so so as not to put such an overtime strain on all
