I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I love the job security and the annual raises. I really appreciate being able to give back to veterans that I serve. As a veteran myself, I have been served well by the VA and now I have the opportunity to provide service to other veterans. I have great hours, great co-workers, and great leadership in the higher echelons.

Cons

The downside to working at the VA are minimal. The opportunity for upward movement is limited because people tend to remain in the VA for a long time. Therefore, being able to take a supervisor's position once they leave comes only once in a while. Also, there is a lot of competition for these coveted positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you've been doing. Small changes make a big difference.

    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.
