good supportive environment. feels like you belong to a Big Family
Working at DIS has been a good setup for me. Work and Family balance has been acceptable. Sometimes, At times, we work overtime and we would be compensated with time off.
Overall, I am satisfied with my work.

Not much to say
I no longer work for the state . Depends upon who heads up the commission. I was told to not investigate major Arkansas companies and to ignore their violations.

Management is awful
When I first started it was fantastic I loved going to work. Then new management came in and they were very belittling and arrogant. Always trying to intimidate people. Very poor attitude and interaction with employees. Just because you have a badge and gun doesn’t make you God. I wish I’d never met the new management. 13 people have quit in 7 months.

structured environment
I learned how to be disciplined and focused on the tasks at hand. Learned to work with little or no supervision. I learned that integrity and honesty will take you far in life

Highly political infrastructure
Jobs are not secure. Usually new staffing with new administrations. Therefore, every 4 years is a guessing game. Because this is a constitutional officer the positions do have quite a bit of politics involved.

Benefits are definitely the best
If your looking for great benefits then the State is the place for you. They just have a problem moving people to areas that they were not originally hired for without any extra pay.

You can come to work and learn something knew everyday. Mangers no what it means to be able to help others and always there to give advice. You be promoted within the company.

Demoralizing
No one gets better than a C grade for doing their job. Hard work and dedication is not rewarded. Minimal training, unrealistic expectations. If you don't mind beating your head against a brick wall for years on end, this is the perfect job for you.

The difficulty was overwhelming
The state job was in the foster care program. The job was a necessary position and a noble undertaking but the hours and responsibilities became overwhelming and beyond control

I had a job of a lifetime and fully appreciated it. All that was asked, was to do my job.
As a counselor I was given a great deal of autonomy. Unfortunately I did not dot my I's and cross my T's and was asked to resign. Awesome job and supervisor!

Good benefits; horrible stress & upper management
Generous leave that accrues more as employee's years of service increases. Mnagement is very hands off & rarely helps process the ever-present, overwhelming caseload. Clients are often in personal crisis/low point in life, making every single workday rife with stress & verbal abuse, which employees just have to cope with. Get your high blood pressure prescriptions ready!

11 years invested. Boss destroyed my career.
Change in management lead to the boss creating a lie that accused me of doing something I didn’t. He, along with the agency directors and managers, destroyed my career and got me blacklisted overnight.

This is the worst place I’ve ever worked at in my entire life. The management is racist and they only help to promote certain people of a certain race. It’s corporate slavery! I work so much I barely have time to get up and use the restroom.

Avoid at all cost
Managerial staff are not knowledgeable. Individuals that you work with do everything in their power to get out of work. If you are the hard worker, you will know it by never having any time to breath at work while your other co-workers seem to not do anything.

Ok place to work
Typical day is very busy, must be alert dealing with sensitive information. Most enjoyable is the guarantee of meeting new people from all backgrounds and very diverse.
Pros
