      Busy on a daily basis , receive and, communicate with a lot of staff, a lot of clerical responsibilities that I enjoy very much.

        I can't think of a pro at the moment


        Short staffed, and poor management. Under qualified people are given management positions because they don't pay enough to attract qualified people. The prisons are time based contracts. The place can close down and leave you high and dry. Not a place to work if you're looking for a career.
