Director (Current Employee) – Washington Navy Yard, DC – May 17, 2017
Great place if you are supporting a family. If you want to be autonomous or innovative, keep looking. The work is fairly easy no matter what agency you work for as long as you are relatively qualified to perform the job. Leadership is the biggest issue, since most are merely puppets and aren't able to lead without all the red tape.
limited breadth of growth; slow paced; stagnate technology; lacks innovation

Medical Administrator (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 2, 2017
Accept government position in Nov 15 and started April 16. In current position I am an administrator; however, due to government culture everything is a wait on everyone else, even though you are responsible. There is low to no accountability of other organization members. I have learned this is not the best fit for me due to government bureaucracy. No opportunity to use critical thinking skills or make impact. I like high paced work environments where I am challenged and can make an impact to the overall organization and patient care/experience. The hardest part of the job is the government wanting to run like a business but not realizing the limitations or challenges they put on them selves. Access to providers isn't necessarily as significant to the patient as is quality efficient care and patient experience as noticed on the JOEs surveys. The present work environment is laid back culture & with autonomy. My preferred work environment is a professional environment with autonomy and accountability.
stability, gaurantee pay raise for the first 4 years
