I worked at VA Health

Pros

The benefits are great and the mid-level managers were exceptional at taking time to learn about their employees unique situations.

Cons

The job security within the system is a drawback in my opinion. It breeds complacency when an employee can do sub-par work and just be transferred to a different department instead of being fired for not producing adequate results

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It may be beyond managements control but in order to facilitate an environment which attracts the best, most productive workers there should be enough room to weed out the bad employees so they do not hurt morale

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at VA Health

    Pros

    They give you some opportunity to grow. They have good pay for out of school employees. Hours are good without too much overtime.

    Cons

    Management structure is corrupt, responsibility most of the time is not taken for actions that occur throughout the medical center.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to be able to fire people if it is necessary, not always wait for attrition. Management also basically needs to "grow a pair".

    People are nosy, there is a lot of backstabbing in certain offices. People dump their work on others. Watch your back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that employees are getting the respect they deserve. Show them more appreciation. Im a student empoyee but I see a lot of mistreatment of lower employees by upper managment
