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


    Expectations are clear. Depending on the team you are assigned to, meeting expectations is fairly easy. DOR management is very open to new ideas and if they are feasible, they will actually use them. There is a very solid team atmosphere and everyone is verys supportive of each other. DOR is implementing Lean principles, which is improving the culture even more.


    Lots of "gray" areas makes it hard to do your job at times. Many decisions are tied up in legislative red tape, so making changes can be difficult at times. Finding time to do everything expected of you can be difficult at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue implementing Lean. Consider adjusting the work load for examiners so that it is more attainable and so that Examiners can actually go to training without it hurting their work time.

    Positive Outlook
