VA - a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.

Pros

The Dietetic Internship is strong, and has a great reputation. I thought when I was coming in that it would be an amazing and challenging year, but it really turned out to just be challenging.

Cons

Bureaucracy, lots of frustrations and being treated like a kid by some of the higher ups. I though that this would be a place where I would make great connections, and I did connect with some of the medical staff and other interns, but overall, the RDs treated us condescendingly, which was really awful.

Advice to Management

Try to make the interns feel more welcome so we will come work for you! Almost none of us ever wanted to see that place again.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    The benefits are from the government. Huge stable organization.

    Cons

    Run down dark and dingy facilities with out-dated equipment. The staff seems miserable and not of the highest caliber. A lot of the Dr's seem un-caring, just going through the motions. If you don't smoke or use vulgarity on a regular basis you won't fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the facilities and make even the grounds non-smoking. Set some standards of dress and hygiene and curb the raunchy talk amoungst employees.


  2. Somewhat chaotic...Management could be stronger

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible schedules Most people are friendly Salary above minimum wage

    Cons

    Supervisors failed to solve staffing problems and issues in reasonable time Very little accountability for bad performance Hospital holds onto bad employees instead of letting them go Felt like good workers go unrecognized, but are given more work to make up for the failings of other employees Nepotism in hiring of some positions

    Advice to Management

    Figure out who the good employees are and give them a reason to stay Figure out who the low performing, problematic employees are and get rid of them Management should take more control to solve everyday problems that linger on
