    I worked at Georgia Department of Corrections full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Money was decent. The benefits were good

    Cons

    Dirty upper management. Care bout the inmate population more than the officers. Not concern about the disrespect officers take off inmates. Dangerous

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your officers. More people would stay if there was people willing to enforce policy.

      Pros

      Love helping the inmates accomplish their educational goals. Makes me feel like I am really giving back to society!

      It is hell to pay when you make more than or just as much as your supervisor!

      Advice to Management

      You are treating your teachers just like the public school system and pretty soon, you will not have any certified teacher that will be willing to come and work for you!
