Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time for less than a year

Pros

Supporting the Veteran experience is an honor. I come home each day feeling accomplished.

Cons

It can be difficult to maneuver through the various obstacles that present itself when working within a structured chain of command in an a government agency with over 400,000 employees. But those... difficulties can be overcome by intra and inter-office networking. Everyone has the same mission to support the Veteran experience, so it’s just a matter of working together to do so.

Current Contractor - Lead Consultant

I have been working at Defra for less than a year

Use of latest technology, all the high end equipments required to do the job are provided. Felxible work hours, working from home,very supportive project managers, teams working in collaboration to... achive the same goals.

Cons

Wifi at the office location can be a bit flaky at times and office space need refurbishment (Bristol TQH).

Advice to Management

Avoid third party consulting partners getting involved in currently running projects, it never yeilds positive results. :)
