    I have been working at Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A fast paced never a dull moment job, with a chance to make a difference if you apply yourself. Very Stable ,Bargaining unit. Pay increase gaps are not too bad.

    Cons

    This job is not for everybody ,It is a very mentally and physically demanding job. You are constantly dealing with different personalities all at once inmates and co- workers alike. It takes a lot of patience and persistence to be successful. You have to be able to let things roll off your back.

    Advice to Management

    The key to having a successful outcome with employees is to ensure that you have established clear expectations and goals. In doing this you motivate your employees by giving them something to accomplish. You also have then set a clear standard on what is expected of them making it easier to achieve.

    Pros

    The people are phenomenal. The work is easy and exciting.

    Cons

    Administration DOES NOT CARE about the officers at all!! They care more about coddling the inmates and giving them anything and everything they want. Officers are replaceable. An inmate commits suicide? Crisis counselors and extra privileges for the inmates on their unit. An officer dies suddenly off-duty? Nothing is even said in roll-call. Second chances abound for inmates, but honest mistakes as an officer will cost you your job- especially on probation.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you're doing- it seems to be working well enough for you... pretty soon you'll have no control over your institutions, and your turnover rate will just keep skyrocketing.
