I work in a facility where 99% of the people are veterans. I enjoy my job and serving our veterans with any request they have. I enjoy working with my coworkers who make our 8 hours fun and enjoyable.

The basics of the job were hard to follow. Management had a loose understanding of what and how to run the facility. The best that can be said is that the doors opened daily.

The day was mainly getting the veteran areas up to date with reporting their finances on the system and reviewing Citi Bank purchase for different areas and reconciled the information to report back to management.

This was a great learning experience as an Auditor/Accountant.

Little to no advancement opportunities and underpaid
You work long hours with little respect or appreciation from other staff or management. There is no esprit de corps and very cut throat. Constantly have to be PC so as not to offend anyone and be placed on report or under internal investigation.

Unhealthy work environement
The organization like any other has excellent people and people that have no business being there. Unlike other places to be fired from a position that you are inept or incompetent at requires a lot of work.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
unchecked hostile work environment

Not a good place to progress
Government job so all of the standard good things like Job Security but this is not a good place to advance. Supervisors would rather hire from another VA for promotions so they don't get accused of favoritism by promoting within. So, even though you may work hard and excel at your position, you will be treated the same as those who do the bare minimum. Sooner or Later even the most motivated workers figure this out so you either move on or become a bad employee.
Pros
Hard to get fired
Cons
too many to list

A+ for the Medical Media Department
The VA can be a difficult place for women to work. Just remember you're mostly going to be catering to seniors who tend to be a little grumpy.

However, the Medical Media Department was a nice and quite office to work in. I am grateful for the experience and opportunities I had there.
Pros
Compensation & Benefits
Cons
Sexism in the Workplace

Never a dull moment
The patients keep me very busy from the moment I walk into work. Everyday is a new learning experience because of the different diagnoses, medication and different personalities. The hardest part of my job is not getting emotionally attached to certain situations. Being around the staff and patient is enjoyable.
Pros
Learning
Cons
Expensive family healthcare
