Project Manager (Progressed from BA to PM) (Current Employee) – Palm Beach Gardens, FL (remote) – April 1, 2012
Enjoy the work with the Veteran's Admistration with overseeing 12 pilot sites across the country. This involves staff supervision, conference calls, time keeping, invoice approval, timeline maintenance, weekly and monthly reporting, as well as handling staff issues should they arise. Work mostly with contractors on site and the VA employees as well as another vendor and find them all dedicated to this project and nice to work with on a daily basis. Hardest part of my job is that at times I cannot make critical decisions without waiting for upper management approval that agrees with me in the end having made my decision knowing the project and situation involved. Prefer being respected in my field, if I error then discussed and know not to make the same mistake again rather than the delay this process can create. I have learned that I do my job well and need to be trusted to do it based on my own experience and past reputation with the company.
as in any company that depends on contracts, whether fulltime or contract work, the uncertainty of job security
