Suggestions for improvement
- I would change the pay, the GS system needs to be updated with the modernization of today's skill sets. Different times then when this came out, we need a better pay system that pays us for our skill set and our education.
What I like about the company
My company is a nationwide hospital that serves our veterans. It is very rewarding, we have a full spectrum of hospital care and services. WE offer many incentives for the employee as well, we have free parking, free bus passes, cafeteria on site, we have our own Union that works hard for us employees. We have annual training to keep up with the civilian hospital counterparts, great staff and chain. We strive to take care of our veterans and their families from the beginning to the end of their care.
What I dislike about the company
I disapprove in the lack of promotion for non african american women. We don't get promoted for our skill set, we are passed over in which we are the minority rather than the other way around as presented in years past. We need more streamline training in each particular field.
