    I have been working at Ontario Ministry of Safety & Correctional Services full-time

    Pros

    I enjoy the autonomy in making my own schedule. I enjoy helping the offenders and assisting with victim/public safety. I enjoy all of the vacation time.

    Cons

    There is too much focus on the adminstrative tasks, which management seems to solely focus on, instead of the work we do with the offenders.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding to the unmanageable administrative tasks, especially those added to the OTIS Elite and LSI-OR. There should be more PDPs instead of CMRs, which only seem to focus on the negative.
