No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Very nice retirement package, good health benefits, competitive pay. While I was working there in my position the VA offered up to 5% matched contributions to the TSP retirement account. I think that is pretty generous! Starting out I also had 13 days of vacation, 13 days of sick leave, and 10 federal holidays off. A good amount of days off for a first job.

Cons

Sometimes when someone does really poorly at a job they are just reassigned to a different job. This leads to some people who should be fired to just be bad in a different position.

    Plenty of time to work on schoolwork when no other tasks needed to be completed, Friendly people at work as well as the veterans we served.

    Much better HRM (human resource management) is needed.
