Job Security has it downside, too

Facilities Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at VA Health

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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementIt 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
