benefits elsewhere are better... it all depends on your perspective
You may think the benefits are good, if you never had any benefits at all.... not what they use to be, there is much better, keep looking expect the schedule to consume your life if you are a JCO, you will swing work wise all over the place. No raises ever because it is never ever in the budget except for top people who somehow manage to get/budget fat bonuses. Plus, even if they decide to budget for raises, you have to score "exceeds" satisfactory, not good enough to be satisfactory.. imagine some of the back stabbing, manipulative competition that goes along with this too, when they will only give a single budgeted raise to one person out of five, or ten people? This is one of their methods, but this depends on which location, what supervisor, maybe even what day it is and/or what side of the bed they got up on. I'd just say, if you are looking and have nothing to go to, this they might have something, a nice filler, if you are in a career for corrections, but otherwise, I would keep looking, they are still lacking in many areas, especially in the department of how they treat their employees.
