Truck Driver (Former Employee), Kent, WAAugust 3, 2013
I have no complaints with this company. I would have stayed there, but in the reconstruction of the system they were overmanned and needed to do a reduction of workforce. I was low man on the payroll and relieved of duty. This forced me to move back to CA

Education Specialist/ Nutrition Educator (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJanuary 10, 2013
Multifaceted government programs. I worked in the department of Public Health.

Lots of Potential but Little Management Planning and Systems
Project Manager (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJune 14, 2012
Pros: good wages & benefits admin, management (electeds) appreciate employees labor.
Cons: little opportunity for recognition, growth (expertise) training or interaction with management/policy makers, little regard for industry standards or best practices.
Although government is pegged with being overburdened with red tape, this employer had very few written management processes and didn't use management systems or tools (e.g. Lean). I understand they are starting to do so now but the culture is one of "we will outlast them". Top management is elected rather than being seasoned managers and, depending – more... on the elected official, they can chose to select cronies or professional managers. And it is true, employees outlast the 8+ years of any political/executive management reign. The result is program/work group oriented rather than corporate oriented culture, direction and loyalty. Decisions at many levels are based on organizational quirks rather than best practice, professional standards or even selection among researched alternatives.

There is a lot of potential to do good work in a variety of areas (environment, transportation, public health). However there is a disconnect from top management direction and worker productivity. It is an unusual organization, even for a public sector organization. – less
