Pros

Great benefits. Decent pay. Knowing that you're helping our nations vets. Advancement is available, but limited at times.

Cons

Limited advancement opportunities at times. Flex-time not availabe where I'm at.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to be more open to other workers and not just hiring vets. Alot of jobs are being advertised for vets only. Makes advancement hard for the rest of us.

    Pros

    Serving veterans and making a difference, great benefits and employee wellness programs, great educational and training opportunities, job security, opportunities to transfer within the US.

    Cons

    Very political atmosphere, little opportunities to advance, feels like decisions are made based on administration rather than veteran care, treated like an hourly employee rather than salaried, no flexible scheduling/work from home/job sharing, red tape is frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance employees based on performance and really listen to employee feedback.
