St. Louis VA is known as WORST facility in USA
Pros: utilizing my gifts to care for my heroes.
Cons: filthy facility, no chance for improvement, corrupt administration and management
As a professional who loves serving those who served our nation, I would have loved to continue to work at St. Louis VAMC, John Cochran, but I have integrity and want to work in a safe environment.
After two decades of working in some of the greatest facilities in our nation, I am appalled at the truly corrupt, illegal, complacence and filthiness in – more... this building.
This is supposed to be the "Hospital for Heroes" and certainly, many of our nation's finest warriors go there for help. Instead, they are treated by many as in-conveniences or interruptions of a smoke break, nap-time, or shopping-excursion.
If you do not smoke, are not a frequent drinker, or like to work with a team that uses the word "excellence" when described, stay away.
There are good and conscientious employees there, but they are in the minority. – less
