    It isn't what you expect...

    Health Tech (Current Employee)
    Maywood, IL

    ProsYou are helping the veterans...

    ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementI had no problems with the management. Jennifer was excellent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Experience at Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital

    Data Management Programmer (Former Employee)
    Maywood, IL

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

    Review

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Hines, IL

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

    ConsIt 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 Senior ManagementThe 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lack of accountability, revolving hospital director door

    Administrative (Current Employee)
    Hines, IL

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
