    I have been working at Wexford Health Sources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent AND THAT is about it

    Cons

    Forget ever getting to take a vacation because it takes forever to accrue PTO. No 401k match, automatically dock lunch if one is taken or not. Does not feel like a company that cares about employees.... only looking to make money.

    Pros

    Opportunity to do right by the inmates.

    Cons

    Salaries do not commensurate with the role. They have to be willing to pay for talent, otherwise the revolving door will never stop. The company lose good people very often because of poor compensation and treatment of employees. Someone on top needs to really take a look at this soon.

    Advice to Management

    You have to make salaries more competitive and be willing to truly listen to issues when they are presented to you not when you are ready to address them. You get what you pay for!

    Pros

    Your fellow co-workers nothing positive about Wexford. Hopefully they hurry and lose their contract already. If it weren't for great staff I would have left the company sucks!

    Cons

    Everything. Incompetent people in upper management and corporate they are definitely more concerned about their money than lively hood if their employees and patients. They rather save $15 than provide extra gloves for nurses.

    Advice to Management

    STOP MICROMANAGING. Just because its corporate doesn't mean it's right stand up for your employees.

    I worked at Wexford Health Sources (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Found some great co-workers through my years there.

    Cons

    You never felt like you ever left. That job sucks the life out of you. Wexford says they're a family orientated company but when it comes to that your family will always come last.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of the DON having "pets" among the employees, everyone should be treated equally. Especially with discipline.

    I worked at Wexford Health Sources full-time

    Pros

    There was free lunch at the beginning and the officers I worked with were pretty nice.

    Cons

    Dangerous work environment and supervisors did little to teach newcomers of contraband and staying out of dangerous situations. Got yelled at for utilizing free lunches (in a room full of employees). A "prized" employee was jealous of my work ethic and getting complimented so she stopped working a it all fell onto me and I was blamed. Nursing staff was atrocious (except 1!) and didn't know anything about patient care. Nursing staff TERRIFIED to call the doc during the night for orders and would do anything to get out of it. Have Emt basics work out of their scope of practice. There's so much. Just steer clear if u want to save yourself a lot of stress and BS.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your employees safe practices for working in a jail for the first time. And beware of hazing.

    Pros

    I can't come up with any...

    Cons

    Wexford Health partners with IDOC to hire prison employees in the Mental Health field...and that's where the problems begin. No one seems to know who the supervisor is, or it changes rapidly along with your job description. Pay increase promised and not fulfilled.

    Advice to Management

    Start being HONEST and professional.
