Current Employee - Veterns Claims Examiner in Washington, DC
Current Employee - Veterns Claims Examiner in Washington, DC

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

Pros

Job security, government benefits, helping Veterans, usually able to stick to 40 hours and then forget about work so work/life balance is good, salary is decent.

Cons

Job experience and training for many of the positions doesn't translate into anything useful for jobs outside of VA. The government seems to enjoy doing things the hard way - red tape! Retention of bad employees is a big issue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should be more willing to discard dead weight employees.

    Keep employees better informed, stop depending on the same supervisor to "pass" info. Improve morale, increase telework opportunities, stop random schedule changes, work on weather announcements..
