Company Culture

I think in the two years I worked there, I was commended for my work by my supervisor once, I was told in no uncertain terms that I was lucky I had a job. Fairness and trust was non-existent

Support from management

I had often complained about the way that the file clerks were treated as second rate citizens, while the claim assistants were treated like human beings.

Teamwork

As a file clerk, we had to work together, it was necessary given the workload

Freedom to work independently

Our supervisor, was a do as I say and don't ask questions

Internal Communication

The file clerks knew when we messed up, it was made known in daily meetings. Often we were told what do but never trained to do it, this I feel was one of the top reasons the file clerks were known as the bottom of the heap.

Gender Equality

In this respect I can say that women do have the same opportunities as the men in most situations.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long-serving workers can do pretty much anything they want

Career Development

It is true that a person can advance given they meet two criteron, 1) they are well liked by the supervisor, 2) they are of the right color

Overall compensation for your work

Yes

Office / Work Environment

Sometimes we were put into dangerous situations where complaints were filed, but until someone actually got hurt, it wasn't changed.

Environmental Friendliness

Working with the VA, you get to know the Veteran behind the file, it's what makes social matters a priority

Work-Life Balance

We were often called upon to work mandatory overtime, when your a full-time student as well, it really took its toll.

Company Image

If the higher up only listened to some of the comments made on a regular basis with regard to working at the VA Regional Office, they would jump out of the window, people are afraid to step forward as I found out why.

Job Security

Yes to the first, and an emphati no to the second part

Handicapped Accessibility

As a government entity, they must adhere to all and I must say they do this in a great manner

Workplace Safety

I was on the fence about this, until I fell off of it, only then was I given proper trainging about an aspect of my job that was dangerous

Challenging Work

Yes, I can most assuradely say, that when I work for someone I give 110% and even more so with the VA

Inclusive / Diverse

No, the VA Regional Office in Houston is made up (this can be verified) of 85% African-Americans, it is very hard to get past this and it is a known practice that supervisors most often at the VA Regional Office in Houston, stick with their race.
