I love caring for the Veterans!!!

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)

ProsIt's very rewarding to care for the Veterans. The Government has great benefits for its employees. There are lots of great employees that work for the VA. Employees can transfer to any VA, and there are lots of job opportunities on usajobs.gov.

ConsPolitics. No accountability. Lazy-inefficient workers. Employees in management positions (and physicians) only hob-nob with each other, and ignore workers that aren't either managers/chiefs/physicians/ or any other position of power.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease evaluate each employee's resume and work experience, and assign them to the most appropriate specialty. If a person has a disability, please assign them to an area that will allow them to demonstrate the safest production outcome.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
