Pay, Experience, Great Mission, Vision, Good people

Cons

Commute, some lackadaisical workforce, workplace politics

Advice to Management

None, I am management. Communication works, nothing really to gripe about. You have good days and bad days. it's up to you to make the best out of your career. No point in griping on a website about things you can't change. If you come to VACO, expect to work hard or get left behind.

    Pros

    Located in beautiful, downtown Oakland federal building, close to public transportation. If public transportation is used, VA will reimburse your costs.

    Cons

    Terrible, dog eat dog management. Emphasis is on fast processing of veterans disability claims regardless of ethical considerations or veterans' needs. Veterans Service Representative are under enormous pressure with thousands of claims backlogs. VERY understaffed, which continues in 2012 despite Congressional oversight.

    Advice to Management

    Either adopt professional ethics and dedication to veterans' services, or get another job.
