Good duties, bad place to do it, and very poor management.
Very poor and uncaring management. Extremely high case loads and levels of stress. 18-20 cases / month, unrealistic expectations, exceptionally dysfunctional clients and management.

Poor management
Extremely arrogant, lazy and poor management that have no idea what support is and have no desire to learn. Worker's are treated poorly and turnover is very high. Upper management has little idea what the worker really does and the challenges workers face.

Great until the end.
Wisconsin Corrections was a great place to work and great to me for the first 32 years. My last four months (and beyond) have been the worst of my life.
Pros
Some good people.
Cons
Poor new administration. Harassing.

If you like to be yelled at by your manager, then this is the place for you.
Horrible management, non-compliance, state and government has always had a reputation of being slow to keep up with technology, but this is the worst place I've ever worked at.

Great employer
This is an employer that serves a mission. You will feel a sense of purpose working to serve the public good instead of corporate for profit organizations. For those with a growth mindset the possibilities are endless.

Worse place I ever worked
I worked for the state for 28 years. SRSTC was the worst. If your not 1 of the good ole boys they treat you terrible. They were out to eliminate my job. Finally had enough and retired.
Pros
Every other state job was great. Not this one.
Cons
If u don't kiss butt watch out. Watch out. Upper management sucks.

Diverse and great working environment
Great place to learn a lot about different areas of the legal field. I enjoyed my time employed at the Department of Justice in Madison. The only downside was the commute to and from work.

good opportunity
Taking an LTE position with the state allowed me to freshen up my resume and learn a new field. The flexibilty of LTE work is a benefit in itself, but a permanent position is required for standard state benenfits.

Not fully comfortable doing this. Perhaps this portion should become optional for equity sake. It doesn't seem amicable to force disclosure. Just a thought; particularly for a service such as this.

Workload was crushing but most developed workarounds to increase efficiency.
Good peer support, part of a team with shared mission. Management engaged in strategic planning to develop ways to more effectively deliver services and recognize staff efforts above and beyond the minimum.
Pros
Good place to work, reasonable compensation accompanied by excellent benefits.
Cons
Nature of the work inevitably takes a toll, wearing down even the most dedicated.

when you sign and get a new area to work in the capt will not have some one work with you ;to learn the job
prison Guard like to sit at the desk and read the paper they want more
money and really don't do that much. I Think they are paid very well

I feel the same way., Yo dou" u have capt and LT that treat people like

they don' t count. you have officer that sit and do nothing, Most off

the captain and LT do not do there jobs . they sit and talk about

how much money they earn and they don' have to do anything.. I know

because I have work at one' I think some capt and LT make to much

now for what they do and treat officers Like they don" count ' that why

the turn over. I think some capt and LT should be put back to officers'

When you see what they do and donot do you would agree they make

good money for what they do
