    I worked at US Department of Veterans Affairs part-time

    Pros

    The staff tend to be very collegial, open, and welcoming. Many are top-notch professionals who really care about their work and their clients. Some of the in-house training opportunities are fantastic.

    Cons

    The institution has some financial and programmatic limitations which sometimes makes it hard to provide exactly what the clients need. In some departments, for example, clients must wait a long time (months) for services. Also, the departments appear to be siloed, with one area handling its specialty without much contact with another department that is providing parallel services. Increased coordination between departments would be better for the clients.

    Advice to Management

    Decisions appear to be made from the top down, even though top management doesn't know what is happening in the departmental level. This creates unnecessary stress and chaos, and hurts services for clients.
