Great experience at VA San Francisco - many opportunities

Pharmacist (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsThe people at VA San Francisco are great to work with. There is no competition for positions, but rather a camaraderie that is refreshing. There are many opportunities to expand your responsibilities and in turn career changes.
