Ms. Wallar’s motto: “Why only do it once when you can do it five times?”
Unfortunately, she turned out to be petty and narrow-minded as a CEO. She has taken a laissez-faire approach to most issues and employees, unless someone or something ruffles her easily-ruffled feathers. When that happens, she is suddenly present and ready to attack. I am sure that those who have been on the receiving end of her snide comments and monumental overreactions are happy to see her go.
The sheer panic that ensues from even the smallest non-issue has been a source of both amusement and chagrin for many departments. Complaints about her micromanagement have been validated on a daily basis by the utter ridiculousness of that which she chooses to concern herself with. She is incapable of trusting staff to perform even the most menial of tasks. This has done nothing but severely diminish the efficiency of workers throughout the County, who have become so nervous that even the simplest tasks are now time-consuming. Considering how short-staffed and bogged down each department is, this has been detrimental to their productivity. She has turned confident and intelligent individuals into bumbling scaredy-cats, who second-guess themselves at every turn.
In short, the County environment has not been pleasant or positive during Ms. Wallar’s tenure. She has instilled such a sense of fear, panic and frustration among her employees that many could not stomach it anymore. Others simply dread going to work each morning. Who would have thought that one would long for the Mike Brown days? Surely that says it all right there.
