Suggestions for improvement

  • They should have inspections on employee relations and management. Also, would be nice if they did mid-year evaluations. This way you would know if you needed to work on anything.

What I like about the company

My boss is fair-minded and does not micro-manage us.

What I dislike about the company

The director of the VA isn't a veteran and he doesn't care about firing. He doesn't care about educating the employees.

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.
