    If you value your sanity—STAY AWAY

    Oct 10, 2021 - Case Manager in Springfield, IL

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nothing whatsoever, expect co-workers and the hour lunch break.

    Cons

    Incompetent and no support from management. They do not train you, expect for you to “learn” everything on your own. When you do have issues or questions they go unresolved. Very low pay, terrible benefits, and no room for growth.

    Could be a much better place to work.

    Feb 2, 2013 - Correctional Case Manager in Lawton, OK
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I work with an excellent group of people who are very supportive of each other. Middle management supervisors are above average and attempt to assist as well as manage thier people. PTO is above average for most companies.

    Cons

    Low pay and no raises for non uniform staff in 5 years, 60 hour work load no overtime permitted. Caseloads are more than double what simular companies assign. Non uniformed are considered as support security and often pulled for that purpose with no leadway to complete our work, nor trained for security. Employees work under the "fear factor" princible and time is micro managed by GEO. Employees have been "walked off" for investigation and left there for up to 6 months with no pay. Pay is lower than what is averaged by this company. If you don't complete your work your supervisor receives a contact. Most of the people at our facility are actively seeking a new job.

    Dissatisfied at Corporate

    Jul 31, 2014 - Anonymous Employee in Boca Raton, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Stability, this company just makes money from inmates, there is no product so they just make money. We do get more holidays off than average I'd say. Pay can be good. Most employees have been given some stock options.

    Cons

    This company has terrible communication and when you mention this in a meeting, you just get blank stares. Some people have been with them or with a similar company their whole career so they don't have any perspective. If you have worked at a large, structured company, GEO might drive you crazy. Nepotism is quite common at Corporate, along with the usual politics. Most managers in my dept. have no degree and have received no mgmt. training, they think telling someone what to do is managing. In my dept., we have never received any training. My pay is below what the market pays and we have had several people hired for the same position making more. My manager did nothing to fix this. People working at the facilities usually receive low pay with not much opportunity for advancement.
