    I worked private for 3 years in a juvenile facility and cannot count how many ways they screw their employees. I made it work because I loved the job and felt like I was making a difference.

    Thankfully the facility closed down (CSC - now owned by GEO) and I moved back to Nebraska and got a job in state corrections. It is 200 times better!

    State all the way!!!

    Mine are, but you have to think, I worked for the West Virginia system before going Feds, Your state might have better benefits, just depends.

This is just what I've heard. They said if you start out at federal, you'll like it. But once you've been corrupted by the state, it's hopeless. In the feds, the i/m's have more rights and priveleges(that you can't take away). But if you start out at boot kickin' state, you'll feel like you have no authority.
    You are 100% on target.

    State - we can make I/M's mind, have good benefits, and get the LE retirement multiplier.

    We need to change the signs at the state line-
    "Welcome to Texas, now rack it up!"

    I wouldn't work for a private funded outfit, screw them and the horse they rode in on. They don't know Corrections, and care more about the money then they do there own staff.

    Private prisons are a joke. That's just my opinion. In everything I have read or seen about them they offer little or nothing to their employees.

    Add federal to the poll. I have worked state and now fed but I would never work private. Never ever never. State and fed are bad enough.

    State

    I have worked both private and state. Trust me brothers state or fed is the way to go. You couldn't melt me down and pour me back into a private prison.
