I have been working at Washington State Department Of Ecology full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Overall management is very supportive. It varies among programs. There's good work/life balance and flexible schedules. The building is a nice environment with wooded trails right outside. During your lunch hour you can take wellness classes like yoga, Nia dance or Zumba. I've worked with a lot of nice people who are committed to doing a good job and care about the goals of the agency. Upper management regularly communicates with staff.

Cons

Limited opportunity for growth and pay is below average, but it's worth it to me for the good work environment and contributing to improved environmental management.

    Friendly staff, relaxing environment, low stress, stable job, good benefit and vacation package, management is supportive in training employees, managers provide good performance feedback.

    Cons

    Lack of career growth, pay is lower than the industry average, a little too slow paced. When it comes to layoff, it's by seniority rather than the employee performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take employee performance into consideration when it comes to lay off.

    Interesting for new employees, not much advancement opportunities after a few years.
