    Former Employee - Program Manager in Tumwater, WA

    I worked at Washington Department of Health full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Tumwater is a lovely city
    Nice office buildings
    Staff can be supportive of each other
    The sense of satisfaction from public service

    Cons

    Leadership was oblivious to impacts of their inconsistency and lack of professionalism.
    Skill doesn't dictate who gets assignments, nepotism does
    Policies work when followed, a lack of consistency in following written policies
    It can be a machine with no soul that runs people over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow policy in management practices
    This review is not a criticism of older managers in general because I've had some excellent ones. Age can bring skill and wisdom. My short term experience with the particular department of DOH that I dealt with prompted me to resign. An older manager ran a department in a way that was allowed 20 years ago but shockingly unprofessional in this day. Processes and procedures in a government agency get ironed out for a reason and for the protection of all involved in a workplace.

    Managers that call employees on weekends, after hours, asking inappropriate personal questions and demanding work get done during a holiday isn't just about a strong work ethic but a manager that doesn't understand appropriate professional boundaries.
      In my experience: communication wasn't clear, the expectation was a moving target and the employee got blamed for managements lack of clarity. DOH is big, there are MANY programs, among them are excellent and well run programs. In my case I would be very careful and look for red flags in the interview process. There were red flags about a lack of professionalism which I initially ignored and it cost me professionally. My interaction with DOH actually hurt my career
