No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Job security, government benefits, helping Veterans, usually able to stick to 40 hours and then forget about work so work/life balance is good, salary is decent.

Cons

Job experience and training for many of the positions doesn't translate into anything useful for jobs outside of VA. The government seems to enjoy doing things the hard way - red tape! Retention of bad employees is a big issue.

Advice to Management

They should be more willing to discard dead weight employees.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some people that you get to help you as a veteran go above and beyond what they normally should do. Nothing better than an association for veterans by veterans

    Cons

    Again, its the people that you get. Some will help others do the bare minimum to get through the day

    Advice to Management

    Do an internal audit here or there, people running your clinic say the front desk are extremely unhelpful
