Former Employee - Dialysis in Indianapolis, IN
Former Employee - Dialysis in Indianapolis, IN

I worked at VA Health full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Benefits, personal growth, and work life balance. The VA has many opportunities for their employees. As a manager, I did not have to work from home which increased my work/life balance. The benefits of the Veterans Administration are great. Some of the best for Healthcare.

Cons

Managers do not have flexibility in their schedule although they are salaried.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers should have flexibility in their schedule.

    Former Employee - Medical Support Assistant in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at VA Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Knowing that you are helping care for American veterans. Generous sick time and vacation. Commuter vouchers.

    Cons

    Not a meritocracy. Anyone with time in grade can advance. Anyone without time in grade can't. Creates a system whereby people do the minimum to get by and a system whereby people with absolutely no ability to lead end up in middle and upper management positions. Horrible morale. Agency controlled by public union which almost ensures no one can be terminated . . . ever. Little or no communication with management. Hiring driven by affirmative action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start actually managing. Start actually working instead of just collecting your pay check and waiting for your next promotion and pension. Actually challenge the legitimacy of the union and its claims and efforts to protect staff who are actually in the wrong and should probably be terminated.

    Pros

    Benefits and the chance to help people

    Cons

    The administrative staff can be highly unprofessional to the point of being abusive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to keep an eye on your staff before you lose some really great employees or potentially have a lawsuit on your hands
