Company Culture

Federal entity that has many rules and regulations that sometimes can be counterintuitive and counterproductive.

Support from management

It always depends on who the commander of the hospital is. One day there is an actual leader who understands and cares about the employees and another day there's someone completely different so that's the nature of the organization.

Teamwork

The department I work in, colleagues generally work well together and stand up for each other, I can't honestly say the same about others.

Freedom to work independently

Most days you can work independently, however when a sentinel event occurs, this is when management steps down and breaths down everyone's throat

Internal Communication

Always an improvement needed. Yes, necessary information comes down the chain of command, however, some things get filtered through and so there's a breakdown.

Gender Equality

For the most part, the Army tries to treat women equally, however being a part of the Army, my own opinion has been biased. But I think generally, the Army tries to give the same career opportunities to women and men.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Generally yes, the older population can be seen in and around the hospital.

Career Development

For military workers, career and personal development is a top priority for most managers so they will be given opportunities to advance in different areas. For civilians, there are some opportunities for advancement, however it is much more difficult due to the need for military to gain leadership skills.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation matches work responsibilities.

Office / Work Environment

Physical environment is suitable, however equipment can be an issue because of the way the government works with supplies and equipment, it can take years to finally get a product that the hospital needs.

Environmental Friendliness

Very earth conscious, lots of recycling programs with incentives when you recycle

Work-Life Balance

As far a the military is concerned, work-life balance is a roller coaster at times. There are days where military are able to get time off while other days we are called to work extra hours due to needs of the army. Civilians on the other hand have much better balance and most managers will work with you.

Company Image

With biases left aside, I am proud to work for the Army.

Job Security

DoD is a very stable and secure job, which is why a lot of veterans become DoD civilians because they can have a second pension. The beauty about DoD is that if there's a similar position somewhere else, you can easily move to that position anywhere there's a DoD facility.

Handicapped Accessibility

Because of the veteran population, the Army has endless resources and tools for handicap.

Workplace Safety

Safety is always a priority with DoD and there's ongoing training to help prevent accidents.

Challenging Work

Most days in the hospital, especially in the inpatient setting, the work can be monotonous. However, there are seasons when the challenge actually is there, and so it keeps people on their toes when work becomes busy.

Inclusive / Diverse

The government welcomes diversity and the Army celebrates every heritage on a monthly basis. Discrimination is not tolerated in the hospital or in any government settings.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make an effort to include everyone when it comes to important news; there's always been a breakdown of information that somehow gets filtered from top down.
