There are better organizations to work with

Research Specialist (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsThe best part of working there is that you can pay your bills while looking for another job.

ConsThere are numerous hassles working at the VA. Even getting to work is difficult. The parking is bad and it rolls down hill from there. Even if you never work with patient data you are under demands to protect your data on computers. Wasteful retraining is required for irrelevant material. As a researcher in the biological sciences if found it cumbersome to work under rules designed for medical workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementI really didn't deal with them. I would generally say that there are huge bureaucracies between people that work there and the senior management. A typical government agency.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
