EmployeeWorked at Bureau of Prisons in Yazoo City, MS at the time of review.

What I like

I feel that I have become a better pharmacist after working at the BOP. I am very much involved in the healthcare professional team, with providers routinely requesting medication information and advice on proper medication selection.

What I dislike

As with any big company, I sometimes feel that executive/administrative staff are out of touch with concerns/problems of bargaining staff.I would suggest more staff recalls/town hall meetings BEFORE executive staff has made decisions regarding important issues. Most of the time, when we meet to discuss big problems, executive staff are simply telling us what they've already decided to do.

Suggestions for improvement

I would suggest meeting with line staff prior to making decisions that will affect the whole department/institution.

Company Culture

I love my department (pharmacy), however, there are always occasional problems when you're working with a big group of people. I feel that we work together to further the mission very well, though.

Overall compensation for your work

My salary is less than that for retail pharmacists.

Challenging Work

As a pharmacist, there are inherent challenges associated with my work. I must be diligent when processing and verifying prescription orders.
