Lack of Staff at times. Lots of staff during the week but focused on other duties and/or unwilling to assist when needed. Working schedules not always completed and management just shrugged shoulders and told us to "deal with it" if someone called out sick.
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Freehold, NJ – June 24, 2018
Was extremely stressful but my co-workers were awesome and were always there to help, My Manger was the best always available if you needed something, the hardest part was dealing with the inmates, most enjoyable was my co-workers
Night shift LPN (Former Employee) – West Memphis, AR – June 14, 2018

shift dff. pay
lack of correctional officers and promoting from outside
RN (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO 80112 – June 12, 2018
Hostile work environment, always short staff and Management is only about their gain, they do not care about patients or their staff. Pay may be decent, but the stress and liability is not worth losing your sanity or license over.
Since mgt is never around, you do have some independence to do your job without someone looking down your back all the time.
Never any breaks, Mgt is always gone, supplies are always limited, hostile work environment, always understaffed, no room for advancement, when told about bonuses they go back on their word, I can go on and on about this company, but I'm sure you get the point
This company consists of healthcare in correctional environment. The leadership in this company is amazing. The Senior VP is very knowledgable and down to earth and wants the best for the company and the employees.

I've had horrible and good HSA's (supervisors). They can make your work experience horrible or good. Working in a prison is a different experience than most other settings. You will either love it or dislike it. I personally love it, because you can make a huge difference in people's lives.
Week Manager, Director of facility was Awful and CCS did not support or protect their employees
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – June 4, 2018
CCS could not keep a physician employed so as the NP I was on my own a lot which helped me to hone my problem solving skills but was very stressful as I felt unsupported. The Director of corrections was a bully who abused his staff and the medical staff. CCS did nothing to protect it's staff just protected it's contract.
Poor upper management, no support and being forced too work all the time.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Bridgewater, MA – May 31, 2018
The only good part of this job is the pay. But, it ends there. Poor managers, being forced to work all the time. No support what so ever, you are on your own. There is a union but progress is slow. Once again money is good if you have been a nurse for a while but it is not worth it believe me. Pay is about 48-50 hr with 10 plus years as a nurse.
Per diem (Former Employee) – Bridgewater, MA – May 31, 2018
Supervisors have no supervisory experience and nursing managers are sometimes brand new nurses. No one cares about each other managers play favorites and no one does anything about it. Things r swept under the rug or hidden. Just an awful place to work. No appreciation for their workers. You complain to corporate and get no answers ever.
Registered Nurse, Health Service Administrator (Current Employee) – West Olive, MI – May 29, 2018
I have loved working Corrections and have enjoyed working for Correct Care Solutions. They have been good to their employees. I enjoy the type of work. There are days that are very fast paced. In every situation you are using your assessment skills.
Full time corrections nurse (Former Employee) – Woodstock Illinois – May 26, 2018
Where to begin... Corporate does not care what goes on at sites. Danderously understaffed. We've had 9 administrators in 4 years. Work load is mind blowing. No raises in two years to then get a pitiful 40 cents. Health benifits are good but you will need them after your stress level breaks down your mind and body. We literally have begged upper management to help us with simple changes to make us more effecient but unless it's their idea we get shut down immediately. We have actually been told to "roll with the punches' and if we dont like it we can leave. Human resources is a joke as they really DO NOT care what goes on to improve work place harmony and success of their sites. Used to be awesome at our place. Now our corrections is so fed up they are telling our floor staff they want CCS out due to our management. Very sad. And dont get me started about patient care. We no longer have time for that. But again...If we dont like it we can leave. Every day a nurse is actually crying.
Love my co workers. Bennifits are good but not worth the incredible stress.
Upper management is horrible. Dangerously understaffed.
Every day and shift is unpredictable. Do not know what type a day it will be. The patient population is very diverse as well as the medical conditions. Enjoy the co-workers I work with and the team attitude we share.
Every day and shift is unpredictable and the autonomy of the job.
