FAMILY CASE MANAGER (Former Employee) – Iron County, MO – March 19, 2019
The state of Missouri encouraged further education and a proactive approach for families to prevent removal of the child/children. The FCM invested time with the family to improve the safety and well being of the child. There were preventative services in place prior to FCM stepping back. Families were allowed to call to prevent family crisis.There was a cooperative effort by all service providers and law enforcement. A team approach worked well with families to build trust which resulted in better results for cooperation of the families to meet court and DFS goals for family reunification. Hardest part of the job was the hours and court preparations and appearances. Most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the progression of families improving their coping skills and be more successful with their parenting skills.
Keeping families together and the team effort from all parties involved with the case.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 21, 2019
Case managers are blamed for everything. Overworked. High case loads. Low pay. No raises. Case managers have unrealistic expectations. Work is never ending and impossible to get ahead. Training sucks. Every department tells you to do something a different way. No one really knows what the policies are. Now that they are not under merit system rules you can be fired at anytime for anything. Even if you can prove that you’ve done the job according to policy.
Investigator II (Former Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – March 21, 2019
In my case, it was the division I worked for. So to say working for the State of Missouri sucks, isnt entirely correct. The Childrens Division suckes. You're overworked, they are NOT flexible or understanding about personal matters, they do NOT care about their employees or the families they are supposed to serve. Bad calls were made almost daily. No recognition for good work done. Good employees leave shortly after starting because of management. Management doesnt follow protocol and often lies.
Terrible work environment, they do not care about work/life balance, they dont care about employees and bad calls are made often
Housekeeper/Maintainence/kitchen (Former Employee) – Chillicothe, MO – March 12, 2019
If your wondering why I didn’t say a lot of good about working there I’m gonna tell you that it’s because I was incarcerated at a state women’s penitentiary and no ou didn’t get paid good but most generally I worked for good people and it helped time pass
Physician examiner (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – February 26, 2019

Information Technologist II (Current Employee) – Jefferson City, MO – February 25, 2019
The State of Missouri is a good place to work for people just coming in to the work force. The work culture is relaxed in down time and head down hard at work when it calls for it. I learned Orion Rhapsody which is a integration program on my own in six months. I say on my own because there is almost no free information about Orion Rhapsody on the internet. I did have the slight guidance (when time allowed) of a mentor. The most enjoyable part about my job is my job. l love working on Orion Rhapsody and I love the people there. However the odds of you getting a promotion where you are at are slim to none. It takes a person changing jobs to get a promotion in the State of Missouri.
Stressful, low pay, and no support for nurses. All they want are warm bodies.
RN Senior (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – February 24, 2019
Verbally abusive mgmt, mandatory OT only for certain people, poor mgmt. I worked there almost 10 yrs and was fired after filing a grievance against an abusive mgr with a long track record. It’s toxic. Stay away! They do not acknowledge nurses week or any other thing to show nurses even matter. We are warm bodies and it’s all they care about. No opportunity for advancement.
Family Support Clerical, Elig. Spec., Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kirksville, MO 63501 – February 4, 2019
On a typical day I was assigned 20-30 Food Stamp applications to complete interviews on and determine eligibility. The normal interview time was 15 to 20 minutes. It was required that you process as many of the assigned applications each day and by the due dates.
Office Support Assistant and Personnel Clerk (Current Employee) – Sikeston, MO – January 17, 2019
The State of Missouri offers excellent benefits. The pay isn't what other others make for the same type of work in this area, but the benefits are better than anywhere else. Health, Dental, Vision, and Life insurance are available at reasonable rates. The paid time off is the very best!
My experience with working for Department of Mental Health in Sikeston MO has been excellent. The office is relaxed and most everyone works together as a team. Supervisors are excellent.
Corrections Officer I (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – December 15, 2018
If I could give no stars I would. Kansas city reentry center is a joke. They are horrible people. The management is horrible. Pay is horrible. The department treats women like garbage. They break the laws and policy. They don’t care. You get mandatory overtime. They put any and everyone under investigation for forever and a day. Do not do it. Do not do it. Do not do it. Captain is horrible. The warden doesnt have a back bone. Dont do it. Turnover rate is astronomical. The director sucks.
Academic Teacher III (Former Employee) – Boonville, MO – December 10, 2018
This was a repetitive, stressful, demanding, and unorganized department to work for. My job at the state of MO was confidential in many areas. I always had to be on guard for offender distractions and disturbances. Safety and security was my number on duty. I taught a multi level classroom from grades 0 to 12,9. Each student was working on a different subject so I switched from reading, math, and language constantly.
Sr.Net Developer (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – November 30, 2018
A good job environment create a great joy of work and learning the new things with the best learning experience. It is one of those places which I have experienced with. We had a great time at work by supporting each one.
