    I have been working at Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You are helping the veterans...

    Cons

    You are working with some very disgruntled employees who are complaining of being there too long. If you are a new hire, expect to be ignored or given all of the work, or a combination of both. Expect your pay to be messed up constantly. That is why I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had no problems with the management. Jennifer was excellent.

    Pros

    During my appointment at the VA Hospital, I was able to contribute my skills to assist in the long time care of American Veterans.

    I have been working at Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits and the oppertunity to work with the our nations Veterans

    Cons

    It is advertised as employer of choice but growth options are very restricted. it can easily turn into a dead end job for some and a jackpot for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management style isthat of a bully. The morale would improve greatly especially in nursing service if you would support the staff and not ride them

    Pros

    Great to work with Veterans, there are some great workers here, benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Hospital needs direction, problems are swept under the rug, good workers are outnumbered by bad workers. Been there 7 years and we're on our fourth director. Find another VA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone needs to come in and say "the buck stops here". The culture of laziness cannot be ignored. Theft is rampant.
