    I have been working at Cleveland VA Medical Center full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I have worked for the VA as a RN since 1995. VA has given me tremendous security and stability, educational opportunities and job growth. At the VA, I have learned how to do more with less and how to work through challenges that may not exist in the private sector. VA is not a hospital where the physician #1 and the nurse's voice isn't heard. Despite the prevalence of mental illness, substance abuse and severe comorbidities, the patients are wonderful: it has been a privilege to care for WWI, WACs from WWI, Tuskeegee Airmen, Pearl Harbor, Battle of the Bulge, Korea, Vietnam and OEF/OIF vets.
    Generous vacation and sick leave, a beautiful and newly remodeled hospital and clinic, great health insurance options and retirement.

    Cons

    Government beaurocracy, budget issues, lack of prestige and innovation, weak middle management and disconnected upper management. Non-professional staff like some clerks are horrendous and very distinct process for discipline and removal are not followed so these people are shuffled around to cause trouble elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs a greater presence, stop promoting people to middle management with the proper training.

    I have been working at Cleveland VA Medical Center as an intern

    Pros

    I was unpaid and truly dedicated to serving our nation. The clients were receptive.

    Cons

    I was left on my own most of the time and blasted at the end. All in all, a disturbing experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your clinical supervisors.

    I worked at Cleveland VA Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    compensation, medical benefits, great place to become fat and lazy. that really is every reason I can come up with.

    Cons

    lazy are rewarded, management is psychotic, accountability is a joke. rules are selectively applied.....the list is endless, and I was never on the bad side of my manager. it can be worse yet. total waste of tax dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Cleveland VA Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nothing. Absolutley Nothing. The entire staff are just terrible.

    Cons

    Abusive staff, terrible service, full of liars

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the staff that are not veterans. The ones who are not veterans don't care for the patients, and they don't care about the abuse they're subjectin their patients to. All they care about is collecting paychecks and benefits. Also, the black staff are very racist and they like to pull the race card whenever someone outside of their race disagrees with them.
