I worked at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

the same benefits that would be for any federal job, nothing outstanding about VA

Cons

Out of several federal agencies I have worked at, the most who you know and favorites for promotion I have seen. Management mouths equality, fairness and neutrality, but do not practice it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a very close look at who you are promoting, often the "most shiny"(friend, perky or relative) gets the job, not the best choice, especially in positions of influence.
