Glacial. Much of the bureaucracy exists to feed itself, not to actually help the operators get things done. Moving a cabinet? Put in a work order and wait, forever. Getting rid of a safe? Put in a work order and wait, forever. Many of these tasks are the responsibility of the administrative staff. Many of them, not all, were here before you got here, they'll be here when you are gone, and they don't really care if anything ever gets done. They are seemingly accountable to no one. Don't ever complain about their incompetence, or they'll threaten you with an EEO complaint, effectively shutting down any chance of you having your need resolved. (And worse, they hold a grudge, so you will forever be at the mercy of a vindictive work group because you dared ask something to get done in a timely fashion, or complained when it didn't.)
