The state lets horrible bosses stay until they retire
Despite multiple complaints by employees and customers, administration does nothing about supervisors who bring employee morale down. Most supervisors are in place until they retire, despite their ways. Administration will pretend they are interested in hearing your concerns, but then will turn around and tell the supervisor everything you said. Needless to say, that can result in a very bad work environment. When supervisors don't get along, they tell their employees not to interact with the other supervisor. There was a time when time was of the essence and I needed guidance from a supervisor. My supervisor "caught" me talking to the supervisor he/she hated and literally yelled at me like I was a child. A horrible, horrible way to conduct business.
