Management looks after themselves and there are no real leaders in sight. Management will lift themselves up in the agency before ever recognizing the ones actually seving the veterans. St louis VBA is an agency to stay away from.

Poor management at the Lee County (Cape Coral, Florida) Va, good old boy system and several employees who lack proper credentials for the job they hold. Toxic environment that needs to be looked into and corrected.

There is no way to stop a hostile work environment. I have tried through the union and other agencies and no one can help stop the poor managers and their treatment of employees.

I think I lucked out. I work for one of the best departments in the VA. I have supportive managers who want me to succeed, I work with many smart and talented people who care deeply about their mission to support Veterans, and there have been many opportunities for advancement in my role. As a Veteran, I feel like my experiences are understood and respected, rather than looked down upon. Since leaving the military, I have worked with employers who just didn't understand where I was coming from. But I feel understood and accepted here. I think it's important to feel like that at a job. Though there are frustrations that come with working within the VA, I feel like once you learn how to successfully navigate them, you can quickly overcome them in the future. If you're not happy with your department in the VA, I highly suggest branching out and finding your fit. I'm really happy with my job and I'm proud to work for this organization.
