Best place to see people at their worst.
Pros: great benefits, pay.
Cons: hostile work environment.
Corrections has gone from a tight brotherhood to a loose group of co-workers, many of who will use any means they can to get ahead, even if it means turning their back on that brotherhood. And if the officers are tight, management and the inmates are a constant source of conflict. And with today's correctional mentality, staff are considered to be worse than inmates (we're the bad guys, not them), often leaving staff out in the cold. Inmates have more rights than law abiding staff, and management usually takes an inmate's word over staff. Do not expect people to stand up for you when accusations start to fly, even if you are in the right. You will lose.
