Company Culture

Company is money motivated. The more inmates in the bunks, the more money that is accumulated. Sending an inmate to SHU for bad behavior is severely looked down upon by leadership due to the "extra work" an investigation causes.

Support from management

Extremely uneducated leadership. Will repremand officers before accepting an officers write up for an inmate. Leadership will not reprimand inmates due to the fact that they do not want to put in the extra effort to investigate a situation. The leadership at this facility is the only reason good and sincere officers who believe in justice, leave.

Teamwork

Employees do not work well together because leadership picks favorites. Leadership prefers a lazy officer who will not cause more paperwork by writing up an inmate, to an officer who has morals and is educated on the criminal justice system.

Freedom to work independently

This job works Panama (12 hour) shifts with no breaks. Leadership will walk outside the facility to waste time, smoke, etc. While officers are restricted to their dorms, recreation yard, etc. Leadership may or may not send you relief for a restroom break.

Internal Communication

Leadership is extremely uneducated and hard to talk to. Leadership tends to blame the officer for doing their job and writing an inmate up for bad behavior because it causes them more paperwork.

Gender Equality

Attractive women are treated badly by female captains. All other aspects are decently equal.

Career Development

Advancement is possible if you lay low and not punish inmates and become a favorite of leadership.

Overall compensation for your work

Paychecks are on time. Money is not worth dealing with the leadership.

Office / Work Environment

No breaks. Volition inmates at time. No back up by leadership.

Environmental Friendliness

No AC in certain buildings in the facility in the heat of Texas summer. No breaks for officers working outside on 12 hour shifts. No breaks for any officers.

Work-Life Balance

You CAN take days off, surprisingly. These are 12 hour shifts. But they do force overtime on you.

Company Image

No.

Job Security

Stable job, so long as you ignore the goings on in the prison and do not cause leadership any extra work.

Workplace Safety

Company does not comply nor train their employees OSHA standards.

Challenging Work

Dealing with inmates and trying to make them better people is satisfying. Dealing with leadership who does not want you to do anything at your job but be there, is not.

Inclusive / Diverse

No diverse or opinions are accepted at this facility. Uneducated leadership wants officers they can brainwash, not officers who've studied the CJ system.

Suggestions for improvement

  • New leadership, more training

What I like about the company

Not a bad job, if leadership wasn't so terrible.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership is uneducated.
