      Pros

      The patients - they are simply great! Benefits - you need to take these into account when looking at your total package.

      Cons

      Switching between day and night shift within the same week. It is difficult and not healthy.

      Toxic Bureaucracy

      Jun 10, 2021 - Logistics Specialist in Indianapolis, IN
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Government benefits. A small group of coworkers were trying to model integrity and do the right thing.

      Cons

      The environment is the most toxic I have ever seen. Bullying supervision, blatant falsification of government records, overpaying for goods and services because of favoritism, daily threats, closed door cussed out by managers across several departments. The benefits are not worth it, no matter how much you hear about how "bad" the private sector is by the mediocre lifers that work at a VAMC or VHA department. Most coworkers are there only to get promoted or secure their job at any cost and if you try to show any integrity whatsoever you are immediately marked and harrassed.

      Pros

      Nice work environment. Physically easier than previous job at a private hospital due to better equipments that allows for easier transportation of patient. Great communication between doctors and other staff. Great benefits.

      Cons

      Sometimes there is an influx of inpatients that needs to be scanned and it can be difficult to keep up with the limited amount of staff we have.

      Pros

      Very low work load, all fed holidays paid time off, 39 leave and sick days paid time off

      Pros

      The PTO and sick leave. Great Doctors, and scheduling staff.

      Cons

      Depends on who you work with. The Staff there if you're not in their clique or participate with them, will gang up on you. Write you up instead of helping.
