A detrimental management style is pervading the department, and it's spreading.

I have been working at Washington Department of Health

ProsCoworkers are, for the most part, professional and nice to work with. The benefits are decent, and Olympia is a very nice city to live in.

ConsThe management philosophy seems to be undergoing a change....and not for the better. It's undermining morale and decreasing efficiency.

State resources are being wasted but when pointed out to management, if it will cause a ruckus to fix, they'll ignore it rather than deal with it.

Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
