    I have been working at Lancaster County - Nebraska full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is an abundance of opportunity to interact with troubled youth to help impact and shape their lives.

    Cons

    Poorly managed. A few bad employees can rally make for a negative environment.

    Advice to Management

    Fresh blood.

    Pros

    Decent Pay and Benefits. Job stability.

    Cons

    There is a lot of gossip and slandering within the organization. I like the inmates better than the staff. Veteran Officers think their better than newer staff and will not offer help when needed. They say if you pass two years your chances of staying is greater because of the pay raises. But for me my mental stability is more important. There is little room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    stop contributing to the gossip and stop playing favortorism. Lead by example. Sergeants will sit in their office and play fantasy football instead of assisting officers.

    Pros

    The fellow officers and direct supervisors are great to work with. The pay is comparable with other positions. Insurance premiums just went up but are still a great deal for employees.

    Cons

    Management is disconnected from line staff and rarely seek the opinion of front line staff. Schedules are arbitrarily decided by the administration without concern for employees who have been in service for many years. Complete lack of communication between administration and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with the day to day operations of the facility. Show more respect for employees during labor negotiations and appreciate the jobs they do.
