Suggestions for improvement

  • Being able to hire more people from different career paths to better assist the Veterans to meet all their needs and demands.

What I like about the company

It took me three years to become employed with the VA, it was worth the wait. The excellence benefits and being able to give back to my service men and women has been a tremendous help. This is an all around place of employment and I can see myself remaining here until retirement age.

What I dislike about the company

The facility that we currently work in is being rented from a company. there is not enough spacing to accommodate so many people and their needs. Hopefully we will relocate soon to better spacing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They encourage you to file sexual harassment suits if you are being harassed, but when you do, there are no repercussions for the person who is initiating the sexual harassment.

What I like about the company

Veterans mean a lot to me since I come from a military family. I have a lot of satisfaction from my job when I have helped to save a Veteran from suicide. I would want someone to do the same for my family members if I was not in a position to help them. I have worked for the VA for the past 16 years and plan to stay there until I retire.

What I dislike about the company

Nothing happens quickly, it happens at a slow pace.

Suggestions for improvement

  • If you are the head of your department, you should either follow or assign someone reliable to follow a procedure and have it implemented at all levels. Communication is the key to a successful business. If new procedures are put into place, a meeting concerning all those involved should be held and/or memos should be posted to ensure that all instructions are clear. Open suggestions from the employees should be considered to help improve the department you are assigned to. I believe too that all other departments in the facility should communicate with each other to ensure the best job performance from all employees/staff.

What I like about the company

Great opportunity for growth or upgrade in job/pay, also with training. Good retirement package and vacation/sick pay included. Flexible hourly schedules to accommodate employee needs, as well as remote worksites. Shuttle available to and from work/home for a minimal monthly fee.

What I dislike about the company

Management either has no clue or doesn't want a clue to the stresses on some job sites. Tension and hostility are the #1 factor for a failing business.
