When I was working, it was very hard dealing with bad behavior Employees. I read an article regarding how this destroy's your morale your attitude and your career. When management just watches and the police service's Tell's you to go see your supervisor, what do you do. Have a mental breakdown instead and medically retired.

Do not work at the Memphis VA if you are white. It is the most racist environment I've ever seen in my life. There is no accountability. Employees are allowed to speak to each other and to the veterans anyway they like. Some people are good as gold. But I have passed black people in the hallway that will look at the wall before they look at me. Management will not do anything to rectify a problem because they're so scared of the Union. Great benefits are not worth this believe me. If you're going to work at a VA work at something higher than a one-star VA

Clinical providers (Physicians and Nurses) achieve advancement through being "promoted" to administration or management, a field in which they have little, or no, education or training. Those who choose to stay in the clinical area, have little opportunity for advancement. Not a good culture for direct care providers.
