I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Growing Department with Administration support, four-year Secretary entering a new term provides leadership continuity

Cons

strong military culture and bias toward veterans in the workplace, huge organization makes it hard to get things done, resistance to change

Advice to Management

Hiring veterans is important, but constant focus on veteran hiring can alienate non-veterans who comprise the majority of the workforce; leadership has very low visibility into inner workings of departments

    I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent professional assistance. Case Managers take the time to communicate with you while you are in the program. Overall excellent support for a Veteran.

    Cons

    Try to expedite the turn around time from initial application to actual initial interview and placement in a vocational rehabilitation and/or employment program.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire excellent case workers.
