Worked for DC Gov for almost 7 years. Each year got worse. Director hired all sorority sisters and everyone else was bullied or fired. Honest feedback was not valued and successful teams were dismantled because they did not understand the complexities of working for the District. Managers gave impossible tasks with impossible deadlines and provided no input. When projects were successful, they took credit, when they weren't successful (mostly because it was an impossible project) staff was blamed and Director was given false information.
Director hired all of her sorority sisters for key positions even though non of them had the necessary experience to lead administrations, bureaus or programs.
Unhealthy environment and everyone who is no longer there is much better for it.
Job security if you're not a manager
