    I have been working at Arizona Department of Corrections full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    A lot of OT available.

    Cons

    Outrageously short staffed. Haven't had a raise in over 10 years. Administration caters to the inmates; there's movie nights and karaoke nights on some yards. Some yards even have playstations. No cost of living pay. Staff assaults are daily and the inmates are not held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the line like the officers do before you make a change. Not everything can be solved with the stroke of a pen.
