I worked at the VA for 6 1/2 years as an LPN if you are not black and not in management you will struggle to survive Cleveland VA
Working for the vets is rewarding in many ways. There is a strong culture to promote healthy living lifestyles for the veteran,their families,service provider and vendors.

You have to understand the culture of the Veterans. Their lives that they once had have bee stripped away from them. So if you put your feet into their shoes you can begin to live the life they are living. It is not easy to adjust right off from a battlefield to a secure homeland with economic conditions.
Incompetent leadership and management! Promoting is based on favoritism not performance because any hint of intelligence gets you targeted by supervisors as a threat.
Horrible they will either throw you under the bus or backstab you.
I think it depends upon the type of management. Each department is different and in my experience it only takes one gossiping tattle tale employee to make that whole work environment toxic.
Healthy commutation, showing passion
Tremendous respect shown to Veterans just as it should be.
