I have been working at Washington Department of Revenue full-time (More than a year)
Excellent benefits, options for internal mobility & growth.

Advice to Management
Keep providing guidance & feedback. For new to you employees be sure they're given the same guidelines a brand new member of the agency would get & keep communication lines open.

All in all I would rate it a very positive experience, I felt comfortable and confident and I also felt they wanted me to be comfortable rather than feeling like I was in the hot seat.
