    I have been working at Virginia Housing Development Authority full-time (more than 8 years)


    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.


    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Accepted Offer
