I worked at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The 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.

Cons

Honestly, the only reason I am not working there is because I moved from San Francisco. The hospital is smaller so if you want something with a fast-paced ER environment, this is not the place for you.
