Positive Outlook

I have been working at State of Iowa full-time (More than a year)

Pros

People! Partnership attitudes. Ability to work across business lines,

Cons

Government silos and some turf battles, but better. Culture is union-based and tends not to listen to management as much as needed at times. Legislature sometimes is more political than practical on funding and programs for citizens - generally don' follow the requirements of operating services too closely.

Advice to Management

Lead by example and work with your peers first! That sets the eample for the rest of us to better work together. Drop the "budget" and "headcount" as indicators of your success. Those are meaningless, what matters is what we provide to the citizens.
