    Does Not Reward Good Work Ethic, Encourages Laziness and Sub-par Employees

    I have been working at VA Puget Sound Health Care System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great flexibility and relationship with Supervisor at least in my position

    Cons

    The HR process is painfully slow. Took 6 months to get hired and has taken 5 months to receive a promotion to a new job 2 desks over. Encourages young, talented people to get fed-up and move on to private companies, encourages older employees, many of which are lazy and are set in their ways to stay at the VA until retirement. No risk of getting fired or even reprimanded for doing a poor job.
