    The pay is awful The management is no longer for the employees Inmates will yell scream as well as curse you

    Advice to Management

    Be king to the empoyees you have yes people want jobs bit that is why the turn over rate is so high. All the things people think about in corrections maybe start giving raises we protect the pulic and make the least money.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Georgia Department of Corrections full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Get entry level Law Enforcement training

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low for required education compared to other LE Agencies. Focus is emphasized in the wrong areas, bigger and better gadgets but not on retention. Provide officers with the proper tools for the job, not what sounds good.

    Advice to Management

    It all starts from the top, not the local office.
