Most of the people that work here are good hardworking people. The pay should be increased for the work that is done. More opportunities should be provided for civilian promotion, particularly to employees who do not have degrees but have many years of work experience.

This job has been a very interesting career. I have learned and seen so many different situations and gain resourceful knowledge. I plan to advance within the company.
Being at this job has been a challenge for me. I've been at the Harris County jail for quite some time now and the times have severely changed from the tome o first started and how they are now. Some work with me and some work against me. This isn't a job for the weak minded. You have to have some tough skin if you plan on coming into this job.
