    Pros

    The Palo Alto VA, San Jose Medical Center was an good place to work. There was a lot to learn. If you stayed focused and did your job, you can move up to a lead or move to other areas. Most people were kind and very helpful. San Jose office was nice because it was M-F and regular hours.

    Cons

    There are people there that know they will not be fired if they don’t do the work. The patients can be hard to work with. They are quick to get mad and there are a lot of mental illnesses. However, there is a lot of support to help you.
