Not the best job I've ever had

Consultant (Former Employee)
Olympia, WA

I worked at Washington Department of Health

ProsGood benefits, co-workers tend to be nice but work stations and assignments are isolating.

ConsPoor management skills, very little oversight, low morale, work is isolating

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to what managers are doing. In my time there I was unable to get regular meetings with my manger (2 meetings in 8 months), couldn't get feedback on performance and didn't ever get metrics to measure if I was doing my job. It's a tumble of bureaucracy with no one i charge.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
