    Former Employee - Epidemiologist II in Tumwater, WA
    Recommends
    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Washington Department of Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lean practices to organize workflow and cut down on wasted time Good benefits Fantastic management team - I always felt well-supported at all levels I felt I was a valuable asset to the wheel of public health in WA State Never a dull moment -- there were always tasks to do, and we were always busy Supportive public health community, and interested legislators and public made the job more interesting

    Cons

    Because of budget, we could have used a couple more epidemiologists to get all of our work done in a timely manner. They scare you out of ever checking your personal email or looking at the web for anything, even during lunch break. Wi-fi only available on DOH-issued laptops
