Not necessarily bad.. But you don't really learn anything, IMO if the first step you do is reformat. You didn't take the time to problem solve or work out what the issue was.
This is what irks me about most IT departments (the one I'm working at now does this too); their first step is to re-image. Re-imaging isn't always the best solution, but it gets done because there's less time spent troubleshooting a single system.
