    To much politics, no growth and do not care about employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere is plenty of paid time off, you learn alot of different basic heavy equipment, and you can get your CDL through them.

    ConsManagement does not care at all about you unless you are related or grew up together. There is nonroom for advancement unless you kiss up or are part of the good old boy program, or minority. They do not listen to your ideas or complaints and if your in maintenance its always your fault for their mistakes or you have to clean up their laziness because they don't make the contractors do their job correctly. Also do not make them mad or they will find away to make your life horrible or push you out the door if you have your own opinion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees with respect and appreciation

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good learning experience

    Traffic Intern (Current Employee)
    Sikeston, MO

    ProsEveryone is very nice and are willing to help. There is always a friendly face around and I'm not sure that I have met someone that is not willing to help you.

    ConsIt can get boring at some point. Things aren't very fast paced so if you like to get things done in a timely manner don't expect it. The pay could be a little more since other states pay their interns more.

    Not all that

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Benefits and pays more than other Missouri State agencies

    ConsThe department divisions make a difference.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOur division head has a closed door policy. No one is allowed to approach him directly. He should be more friendly with his staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    My experience was good.

    Materials Intern (Former Employee)
    Chesterfield, MO

    ProsMany jobs available all across the state of Missouri. The new employee has the option to move around to different tasks to find which suits them best.

    ConsWhile interning, some of the work days were slower paced. There was not much work that needed to be done on some days.

    Rigid Organization

    Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsGood Benefits, Good People, Does accomplish a fair amount of roadwork.

    ConsVery Rigid Organization, tightly ran from the top down, Senior management out of touch with actual work being done. Very little room for independent thinking. Massive Bonding put organization deeply in debt with very little relief in sight.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn light of massive cuts and loss of many professionals. Remove many of the structural roadblocks to getting the work done.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great work environment, good benefits, flexible schedule, but a little subpar on pay.

    Highway Design Technician (Current Employee)
    Jefferson City, MO

    ProsIn the office that I work, the schedule is very flexible. You receive generous holidays, sick leave and vacation leave. Great team environment that is more than willing to mentor you to help you succeed. Good benefits, for the most part. They are even willing to work around your schedule if you are going to college. Really good retirement.

    ConsInsurance is a little high, no longer a 401K match, Pay is a little lower than what you can make in the private sector. General pay raises like cost of living are also few and far between, since it is state money. We have gone 5 yrs without a cost of living raise before.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe have got to find a way to get the publics support and get voter approved funding. We can not always depend on the federal funding.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
