    I worked at Kansas Department of Health and Environment full-time for more than 5 years


    No overtime, secure position for those with classified positions- i.e. you cannot get fired. This is not a bad place to get some experience right after college if you have none.


    Incompetent managers, low pay, no raises for long periods of time, little room for advancement. Also, when when the governor changes, a lot of changes happen in regards to people in charge and what the priorities of the organization are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting people just because they've been there the longest. Promote people who are best for the job.
