Suggestions for improvement

  • If you're going to introduce a new program, adequately train us before you dump it on us.

What I like about the company

I enjoy the normal working hours, 8-5. I have an hr lunch break. We have the potential to get a good retirement if we can hang with it 30 yrs.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove with the sloppy communication from administration. I disapprove of being expected to cover 4 clinics, when I was hired originally to be at 1 clinic. I disapprove of the low pay.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Give a pay raise to the bottom so that the top can benefit in the long run . Provide training and incentives for employees that stay longer and also provide salary increases after certain levels of PDAs are met in the department .

What I like about the company

The benefits and the experiences that I have come to know in the years that I have been here have been memorable . There isn't anything that these people wouldn't do for each other that hasn't been done or said . It is almost as if we are a family.

What I dislike about the company

The pay is a huge problem for the state of Mississippi and the work is constant . That once a month paycheck is for the birds .

Suggestions for improvement

  • Would be nice to have new policies that would allow for working remotely when possible and/or more flexible hours. Salaries are considerably behind and need to be addressed across the board.

What I like about the company

My work culture is one where people treat each other with dignity and respect. We genuinely care about each other.

What I dislike about the company

As a state agency we are heavily scrutinized by the legislature and other state and federal agencies. In our process to please sometimes it seems that we are not moving forward but continually looking over our shoulders.
