    I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The individual has opportunities for advancement in most areas, which includes steps and pay grade. One will receive education in their field of choice. An incredible experience through getting to know the history's of those who served in all aspects of combat, from the very old veterans: World War One, to present. Good benefits.

    Cons

    All though, the VMAC can be a great place of employment, like all jobs, there are some down falls. This particular job can include experiencing the loss of some veterans, due to multiple complication, due to their employment while serving our nation. Very difficult, as an employee. One can become attached to their patients, veteran.
    The VAMC have many rules that have to be followed to the letter. Often, the rules can be exceptionally difficult to maintain. One, has to have multi tasking skills to be able to do the job effectively and efficiently. I worked in a clinical area. Considering the amount of patient flow, and all the tasking that went with this particular job, at times it can be impossible. Clinical jobs at the VAMC, although can be rewarding, are often very stressful. The employee will have to maintain credits, and will be reviewed often, by supervisor and random inspections, which may have consequences if the employee has not fulfilled a job requirement to their expectations. With a clinical position, there is little room for error. Work over load is a normal, daily, occurrence.
