    I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.
