Company culture

It's a prison... of course the culture is terrible!

Support from Management

Management ignored repeated reports of workplace violence and harassment.

Teamwork

At some facilities. At CSP, teamwork is discouraged by some of the housing sergeants.

Gender Equality

Absolutely not. There is a mentality that it is expected for women to "sleep" their way to the top.

Office/Work Environment

There is a large problem within the department concerning sexist and derogatory treatment of some female staff members.

Work-Life Balance

Due to staff shortages and seniority issues, vacations, when desired are hard to come by. Working hours are around the clock and working a sixteen hour day is not uncommon. Instead of time and one-half, the state gives you comp time for excess hours which only gets paid out when the department allots the money for it. Otherwise you may have many hours accrued, but may not see the time off, or the money pay-out for quite a while. The state is fairly good about family leave when needed, i.e funeral leave or sick time. There is not a great deal of team attitude. The mental aspects of the job are demanding and hard on marriages due to the stress of the position.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Cost of living raised that meet the actual climb in cost of living. More promotional opportunity, actual care that you are an asset and are appreciated.
