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

    Pros

    my co-workers are hard working and seriously try to do the best they can...with poor equipment and and outdated, crumbling building and poor/no leaderships.

    Cons

    management does not listen to employee concerns...very poor management. Poor over all morale. Problems are swept under the rug, plenty of "blame" to go around, but no praise, no problem solving, worse place I ever worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your front line employees. DO NOT GOSSIP about your employees!! Do not be so quick to place blame...and try some praise once in awhile...

    Pros

    Great opportunities. Great Benefits. For the most part, working with people who really do want to serve the Veterans who served to protect this great nation, and all we stand for.

    Cons

    The VA does not promote from within. They would rather hire someone without any VA Data System Experience rather than someone who has devoted their career to better themselves, the VA, and the Veterans we serve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify those who are currently employed who are lower GS Grade levels, Promote them to positions where they are paid their worth and can do their expertise full time.
