My spouse works for FEMA. In that office, the Regional Director was appointed as a reward for his work as a Republican fundraiser. The Division director (recently left for another job) was hired because he was a friend of the R.D. In the final tier, my spouse's manager was hired because he was a pal of the Division director.
This hiring philosophy is what has gutted FEMA. It's easy to blame the top brass, and they DO set the example, but the entire executive structure is very broken and we cannot expect things to be fixed in a month or a year- it will take consistent leadership over a considerable period of time to make the needed changes.
