Priorities and decisions are made based on who escalates the farthest the fastest, almost always trumping company policy, long term strategy or cost /operational efficiency. This has lead to an environment of workers who do not progress technology, not in the fear of making a mistake but out of fear of being recognized at all.

Positive recognition apparently now consists of leaving a note card at my desk to tell me what an exceptional job Im doing that was also rewarded (penalized?) with a 2% raise (which is what I received when I wasn't exceptional). At least my note card costs just decreased slightly to offset the cost of paying for my own phone plan to cover off hours on call...

Hostile; managers let bad behaviors escalate or ignore the obvious.

Directors, Corporate, and quadrant managers have blinders. Preach lots of collaboration and cohesive empowerment but shove problems aside. High turnover in one department is for a reason and moving within PHS is difficult. Do not expect support from HR; everyone for themselves.
