I have been working at Mountain Home VAMC full-time for more than a year

Pros

Growing Department with Administration support, four-year Secretary entering a new term provides leadership continuity

Cons

strong military culture and bias toward veterans in the workplace, huge organization makes it hard to get things done, resistance to change

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hiring veterans is important, but constant focus on veteran hiring can alienate non-veterans who comprise the majority of the workforce; leadership has very low visibility into inner workings of departments
