Work that matters, but very poor local management.
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Current Employee) – Portales, New Mexico – August 8, 2018
I believe in the work we do, it truly matters. Unfortunately, the current management is far more focused on the larger of the two facilities in their charge, and refuses to understand the unique problems that our tiny facility faces. There are certain employees that management has allowed, if not encouraged, to disrespect our immediate supervisor causing an unbearable and hostile work environment. We work in a very stressful environment. Lately, the greater majority of the stress comes from management's unwillingness to see, no matter how many times it is brought to their attention, that one difficult employee really can destroy what was a great team, This is unacceptable in such a potentially dangerous environment. We have lost an AMAZING charge nurse because of the hostile environment that has been allowed to fester. Loyal employees get reprimands with no investigation while others get away with blatant disrespect of both detainees AND fellow staff members. Sadly, it is for those reasons that I no longer encourage my nurse friends to look at CCS as a potential employer, at least not in our area.
Very good starting rate of pay for our area
Extrememly poor management, working alone for 12+ hour shifts, frequently being short staffed
