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 Employee - Librarian

I have been working at National Library of Medicine full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Lots of really interesting work happening. Lots of very capable people.

Cons

Typical government bureaucracy issues. But probably better than most agencies.

Advice to Management

Flatten hierarchies when possible and engage more with your younger staff.
