I could find another govt job but I frankly don’t see the point right now. I think the sector has another three years of cuts and those lower on the totem pole will be targets. So I don’t see permanancy. Beyond that, the culture of public organizations I’ve interviewed with is not healthy. At my last interview, I toured the building prior and saw no smiling faces. During the interview, I asked about strategy and was told that there was none; they were keeping heads low to avoid the ax and just trying to survive. And this was a high ranking official. This is not the type of leadership I want to work for.
