The VA is a great place to work. It has good work life balance and committed people. Veterans also work there and get to provide direct feedback. Management could be improved. In some instances Management does not interact with the employee unless someone reports a problem.

Working at the VA as a Nurse is a huge challenge, they are very disorganized and patient care is not a priority. The nursing staff is overloaded and Supervision/Management do not get involved or help with care. Management by design should learn in to assist the staff. Some employees are long term federal workers and tend to be lazy and not care about our vets!

Typical day there was fun to see & hear old vets talk about the past. Supervisors and management failed to communicate with staff. There was no training sessions on or for work habits, safety, health issues at the va medical ctr departments. Disrespect from supervisors, manager & rn's toward lower pay grade employees.Being a veteran working there to help other vets.

Worked there 10 years all my departments promotions were done on favoritism and inexperienced people were given promotions over applicants that had degrees and years of experience, employees and mgmt used Reports of Contacts as weapons on employees they didn't like, too much more to write and not enough space
