Administrative Officer I (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – April 3, 2019
I worked with all levels of administrative staff each day, including fiscal agencies, service agencies, and legislative staff. I performed accounting duties as well as responding to customer service needs.
The most catty and negative culture I've ever experienced in 38 years of employment. A complete lack of transparency and secret meetings that affect so many people. Leadership is more worried about the views the public has than caring for those employees in the agency. Most days it is simply not worth the effort to go to work.
The most enjoyable part of the day was the minute before walking out of the building and having freedom once again!
Custodian/Janitor (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – February 7, 2019
It was easy but boring work with little to no room for advancement. I wouldn't recommend it to others. Wages were not competitive. The management was not great to work for and the communication was not where I believed it should be to better the opportunities for employers and management alike.
Auditor (Current Employee) – Bismarck, ND – September 25, 2018
The morale is very low and people are leaving the office at a rapid rate. The workplace culture is something they are working at, but the progress is very slow. You will learn a lot working here, so it is a great jumping off point.
Programmer Analyst III (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – July 18, 2018
Zero innovation ... and management that was promoted to that position based on who you know, not what you know. Management was clueless about knowing how to do the jobs of the people they were managing.
Claims Adjuster II (Current Employee) – Bismarck, ND – February 24, 2018
I feel my job as a claims adjuster is challenging and demanding on both a personal and professional level. The rewarding part is helping the injured worker through the process and building a relationship with them.
The benefits we receive and very family oriented place to work.
Project Manager and Product Manager (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – February 19, 2018
Leadership cares and really works to help people advance in their careers, for hte most part. ITD and PMO are good organizations but not much opportunity in the security arena that I was interested in. Pay is too low and Bismark ND is just not the most desirable place to live.
Housing was scarce and too expensive for the area as well.
As a road test scheduler, I enjoyed talking to and scheduling the over 8,000 phone calls a month.
Office Assistant/Road Test Scheduler (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – February 14, 2018
I was looking forward to retiring from the State of ND, until I learned there would be no benefits to our particular job title. So as a mother of small children I made a career change and loved that opportunity as well, it provided benefits.
I really enjoyed working with delinquent youth in my community. It was very rewarding to see the progress of those youth that became successful. The job started to become more about paperwork than the success of the youth.
Health Facilities Surveyor/RN BSN (Current Employee) – Bismarck, ND – October 29, 2017
Everyone is usually very hard working and supportive. We work as a team and respect each other. Teams work well together and try to communicate effectively. If needed, team members are willing to trade assignments. Everyone pitches in to review correction plans and complete revisits..
Behavioral Health Administrator (Current Employee) – Bismarck, ND – October 8, 2017
I love serving people. I love the idea of trying to improve people's lives. My Division lacks of structure. Management changes everything every three months. We write and rewrite policies and procedures over and over, but none follows any polices or procedures.
