Company Culture

Morale among employees is low.

Support from management

Zero employee involvement in policies and procedures pertaining to the job of a corrections officer. Some expectations are unrealistic due to staffing levels.

Teamwork

People don't always get along but when help is needed people have your back most times.

Freedom to work independently

They are always looking for something wrong you did so I would say no.

Internal Communication

Communication is terrible.

Gender Equality

Yep.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yep.

Career Development

If you want promoted it's who you know and who you . . . The best people are not always promoted.

Overall compensation for your work

Awesome money really, but it's not enough if you don't make it home to your family. That's always a possibility.

Office / Work Environment

Poor ventilation, broken chairs. You really shouldn't ever sit but when you do it's usually in a 10 year old chair.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling is plastic only in the lounge, metal cans and
Plastic in the canteen. No wide-scale plastic recycling and zero paper recycling.

Work-Life Balance

Nope. This does not exist. They could care less about your family or you as a person.

Company Image

I am, but the public has no concept of what we do.

Challenging Work

I am proud of the job I do everyday and I do try to ensure anybody in my care returns to society with a goal of being more productive and not coming back to jail.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Resign.

What I like about the company

The pay and pension.

What I dislike about the company

An inept administration that blames employees for problems that occur due to lack of staff visibility and initiative.
