    Former Employee - Veteran Services Representative in Oakland, CA

    I worked at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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