I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Steady employment, great healthcare coverage, giving back to those who served

Cons

Lots of middle-level bureaucracy, hard to feel like projects ever get approved

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The VA really needs restructuring from top to bottom. Frankly, ever vet should be given a "VA Care" card and be able to go to any hospital and get reimbursed. Let the private sector take over VA hospitals and VA can then focus on grave sites and benefits.

    Great benefits but not a place to work if you are seeking growth.

    Pros

    They offer great benefits for medical and insurance.

    Cons

    It is a company that only promotes according to who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I strongly recommend that each of you take the time and invest in your employees. There is a lot of potential within the four walls of your business that if utilized could really make each veteran encounter a wonderful experience.
