    Pros

    Work is pretty easy and is mostly administrative tasks.

    Cons

    Hard to advance in the federal system, surrounded by complacent long term employees, often hire individuals externally that have no military exposure for positions.

    Advice to Management

    Make hiring from within a common practice! Employees who show potential and commitment to military medicine should be afforded opportunities for training to be promoted within the system.

    I worked at U.S. Army Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    The entire hospital feels like a large family. Each individual was treated equally and with respect no matter what their position was.

    Cons

    HR process is full of red tape and it took over a month to on-board. In order to advance you have to search for open positions and apply.

    I worked at U.S. Army Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Federal benefits. Serve the nation's active duty soldiers, family members, and retirees. A lot of opportunities for overtime. Diverse patient population and health needs

    Cons

    No ability to advance, frequently changing hospital and unit leadership, very understaffed. Military staff frequently come and go, so unit staff is frequently new.

    Advice to Management

    Make yourself present on the units and try to better understand the work climate, limitations, issues, and staff concerns. It's a small facility, so make an effort to know who your workers are
