Pros: 401k, health benefits, job security
Cons: advancement, job hours, management
Although the VA is a great place to work, I didn't realize until I became apart of that workforce, that it would be so hard to advance. Had I know the "political" side of this job, I do not believe I would have accepted my job offer. The people you get to care for on a daily basis is humbling and insightful. However, it is also stressful, mentally challenging with little reward. There is too much segregation and it leaves you feeling as though you can never "feel comforted".
