Nice clean atmosphere, but mirco-managers. Many of the new administration lack experience and leadership skills. Moved all old employees to Rikers Island facilities while new hires and officers did clerical duties.
PROJECT MANAGER/SR. BA (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 17, 2012
The Department's high level management is highly focused on face time and punctuality while overlooking productivity and quality. A typical work day involves communicating up the chain of command and waiting for instructions and clearance to move forward.
Co-workers are focused on who has rank to give them orders and which orders they will follow.
The hardest part of the job is getting the job done with all the impediments that are placed by management and the overall attitude of the staff viewing new comers as threats.
its a place that allows inmates a chance to change his life around by means of religion ,education counceling ect....
