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

    Pros

    The best and only reason to work there is to serve Veterans!

    Cons

    Everyone knew what we were supposed to be doing, but no one knew how to get the job done. There were plenty of ideas, but no one felt safe to make a mistake. No one was able to feel that there was room for error, though plenty were made.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiding things. Speak frankly with one another in management and with other employees too. There needs to be more interactions between upper level managers and the middle managers to feel secure in doing the jobs assigned. Perhaps, you need a whole new facility to make things work better. Shake out the cobwebs of that old building and go somewhere better suited to the work that needs to be done.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Fully computerized system with easy access all over the country. Stable working hours.

    Cons

    Hard to grow and get promoted in the small clinic, easier at the medical center.
    Continuously very busy with more duties and responsibilities every year. Not a good balance of clerical support for Mental Health providers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough supporting personnel to do better quality job and still have time for training and professional growth.
