I worked at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time

Pros

San Diego is one of the best places to live and work

Cons

It is a federal job and being as such the job falls under the sequestration and furloughs as well as not having a cost of living increase since Obama has been President.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Long Beach, CA

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

    Pros

    really good pay for nurses, able to move up payscale quickly if you put in the time and effort. GREAT PATIENT POPULATION!!! I cannot stress this more. I love the patients here. workload wise compare to private sector is much easier.

    Cons

    terrible HR and terrible management. so much politics! if you want to have something done by HR, you have to wait about 2-3 months average to get it done. ie. get a new badge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PLEASE PLEASE focus your time on patients, not quarreling between administration.

    I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs

    Pros

    Work with patients and directly help veterans. Make a difference in people's lives and after a while you begin to see the changes affecting them which is great.

    Cons

    Pretty low pay for the amount of work you have to do and there are very little chances to move up pay grades. It's also pretty tough to apply for more jobs within the Department because they give veterans preferential treatment (albeit understandably so).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the employees more!
