I worked at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The VA hospital in Fayetteville, AR is the hub for veteran's care for northwest Arkansas, northeastern Oklahoma, and southwestern Missouri. Employees are committed to providing the best possible care they can for the veteran. "The veteran comes first" is more than a motto. The campus is beautiful; the people are friendly. It's a great place to work.

Cons

Because of the nature of a bureaucracy, needed change is sometimes slow in coming. I was advised during my employment interview that this is the case. The management does the best they can to rectify problems and create a good atmosphere for both the employees and the veterans and their families.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work and value the employees who go above and beyond.

    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 Management

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