The Agency I previously worked at rewarded lazy and unproductive employees. Management only liked you if you kissed up to them. Upper management condoned the behavior of local managers by passing the blame and never addressing the issues. Good employees suffered, but still gave every effort to fulfill their obligation of service to the public. Everything got swept under the rug. I was forced out of my job which I loved and had to transfer to another State agency in order to salvage and not throw away 20 years with the State. Unfortunately, I am in my last decade and may not last much longer to see a retirement check from the State of Illinois. The Agency where I currently work has unclean, unsafe working conditions and as is the case with the State, they expect you to deal with it or quit! I am an AAA+ employee who has given my all with no more to sacrifice. If I could land a position in a clean and safe work environment with genuinely good staff, I would have a higher opinion of the State. So far that hasn't happened. Still hoping and praying, however.
Dirty/unhealthy work environment. Gorilla-like manager with less than poor work ethics
