    Pros

    The VHDA mission is as strong as ever. New people to the executive team are bringing non-government ideas. Overall, associates are very invested in the mission and work together to make the biggest impact possible. The wellness program is great. Free parking and the gym are excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Decisions are occasionally made based on personal relationships, not qualifications. The culture is 'we have always been successful, so the way we do it is the right way regardless if there is a better way.'

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to the new hires, both the ones on the executive team and at all levels. Keep hiring people with diverse experiences.

    Pros

    Some needed changes through retirements and major role shifts; new blood in high-level management positions means new perspectives (reviews from a few years ago are largely invalidated). Excellent fringe benefits including gym, cafeteria, parking, etc. The mission is as strong as ever.

    Cons

    Building renovation committee made some bad choices that most associates have to live with. Associate growth opportunities remain stunted. Company functions & staff are very siloed; people spend 20 years doing same job.
