    I worked at VA Puget Sound Health Care System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Lots of improvements are occurring to better serve our Vets. - Leadership in some service lines are really doing their best to make the workplace better. - Job security. - Average to good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    - Too many unsatisfactory employees who seemly cannot be fired or laid off for whatever reason. These employees have poor customer service and shoddy work quality and they are what's bringing turmoil to the VA. It makes other people's jobs much harder to perform because they cannot carry their own weight. - Favoritism - Minimal upward advancements

    Advice to Management

    - Remove shoddy employees and hire new employees who understand that they actually have to work to keep their pay and job. - Hire enough people to share the workload. - Retrain management on many processes and procedures that should be performed according to policies and procedures, rather than for convenience.
