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.

    I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits as an entry point to higher levels of responsibility, perhaps other government agencies/positions.

    Cons

    Poor management, even worse communication w/employees (this applies specifically to my department). Agencywide communication and management is lacking, but the effort is there. Just not very successful. Recent moves to downgrade positions has not resulted in any less work. Conversely, it seems more is added as time goes on. Local management is oblivious to existing department-wide low morale.

    Advice to Management

    I have none as they wouldn't consider it anyway. Needs to adhere to advertised values. Get rid of the "club members" mentality. Hire more vets. Focus more on veteran needs, not just in print or spoken word, but in reality,

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay; working with veterans and their families. Good training for staff. Generous amount of leave/PTO. Job security.

    Cons

    Employees do not feel valued and respected by leadership. Authoritarian leadership style prevails. Burnout is high due to multiple dysfunctional systems and overall negative work culture. Providers are given a high degree of responsibility with little freedom or empowerment. Communication is poor. Creativity and innovation are not fostered or encouraged. Incompetence in employees is too common and tolerated; this would not happen in the private sector.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders need training regarding ways to motivate and inspire employees as well as improve communication. Hire accessible, positive, and accountable supervisors/leaders who care about employees. Avoid too much hiring and promoting from within as this may perpetuate dysfunctional culture. Support career growth and work-life balance. Increase flexibility for employees balancing work-life demands. Don't tolerate incompetence in employees as it lowers morale for those who are effective and hard-working. Support creativity and encourage the sharing of ideas and innovation from the bottom up. Many brilliant, talented employees have skills that are not utilized.
