    I worked at Missouri Department of Revenue

    Pros

    Pay is not great but the benefits - vacation and sick time; holidays; pension (the last not as good today as it has been in the past, but at least there is a pension plan). Bright lights among some colleagues can contribute to a healthy work environment. In a challenging economy, this can be a good way to go.

    Cons

    As in many government agencies, entry-level and first-line supervisory staff are over-managed and under-respected by the organization. Employees themselves look at collegial units and point fingers when another supervisor allows more latitude than their own supervisors - dragging everyone down to their level of bad supervision. Executive management presumes that a law degree infers universal knowledge, skills, and abilities. This results in closed minds against learning about good management practices.

    I have been working at Missouri Department of Revenue full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Allowance of a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Indecisiveness and fear of action by upper management. Lack of functional training in a timely manner. Being held responsible without having authority to correct. Being expected to learn most aspects of the job on your own, without being allowed the time to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The inability of upper management to make routine, yet crucial decisions in a politically charged environment is detrimental to the staff.

    Current Employee - Senior Tax Auditor in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at Missouri Department of Revenue full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training in Sales, Consumers Use and Vendors Use Tax. A specialty often sought by large companies and Accounting firm. Many CPA are not knowledgeable about state laws and regulations that govern these taxes. You have the option to do an option at the taxpayers location, accountant or as an electronic desk audit. You work independently but have the support of your team members. The agency does offer 3 weeks of annual leave and 3 weeks of sick leave which you can use without being scrutinized.

    Cons

    Promotions are nil to none. And cost of living raises or annual raises only come when the Governor give the entire state employees raises. Turn over is often. Many new hires leave within 1 year to 2 years with the training and experience to other companies making 10k or more. The vesting period for a pension is 10 years,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the exit interviews and take action.
