I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs

Pros

Great place to get your foot in the door into the federal government. Good work and life balance. Generally excluded from budget cuts.

Cons

Not a lot of room to move up. There is also an enormous lack in communication which can be extermely frustrating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Our office really needs more communication when changes in policy interpreation occur. We need more room for movement in order to retain great employees and more praise for doing accurate work.

    Pros

    The Mission to provide America's Veterans with the highest quality health care, training opportunities, work / life balance, and public service

    Cons

    The VA Way, employees in leadership positions who shouldn't be there, VA doesn't fire - they relocate, and a lack of change / willingness to adapt to the healthcare environment around VA

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at the medical center level needs to be more willing to change and adapt, to try new ideas, edit old and out of date policies, and create a new VA health care system that will meet the needs of our returning men and women who need our help.
