    I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs

    Pros

    The pay is better for a social worker than practically anywhere else. You can make 46,000 as a case manager, compared to 24,000-30,000 in most not-for profits. Have your license for the independent practice level and you jump to 60,000 depending on location.
    You get paid time off, like 2 days a month.

    Cons

    It is the government, so it is painfully long to get anything done. The computer systems are very outdated, such as systems do not populate fields for you and makes paperwork painfully long, systems also do not communicate with each other so you have to enter treatment plans over and over again. The paper work is more than your average agency. Bureaucracy to the tenth degree. Management knows who they are going to hire and who they are going to promote and it rarely has anything to do with performance. Case loads can be a bit ridiculous and there seems to be a culture that pushing paperwork around and making it look like you are working is more highly valued than actually working with patients. It is very competitive and a bit incestuous, many people are married to other employees and have children working in the agency and other relatives.

    Strange military culture at the hospital. People use military slang all the time, everything is done in military time, and jobs are referred to in military jargon such as your work schedule is your tour of duty and the department you work is is your branch of service. Its like doing a role play all the time if you do not have a military background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't post jobs and hold fake interviews if you have already placed people in these positions. Reward people for their good work. Management makes a lot, and I mean a lot, of promises with little follow through.
