    Former Employee - Rating Veterans Service Representative

    I worked at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits, flexible schedule

    Cons

    VA compensation is borderline criminal in about 8 out of 10 claims, there is no control over the claims process at all which has created an incredible backlog, efficiency is not a priority in the goverment sector, Veterans are hired simply because they are veterans and lack many of the core competencies to do the job well. VA examiners are totally incompetent and would be better labeled as "fortune tellers"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more controls to the claims process and stop hemorrhaging tax payer dollars to people filing fraudulent claims. Quality control needs to be implemented on the VHA side of the claims process. 9 times out of 10 the examiner does not review the claims folder, and states that the veterans claimed disability is as least as likely as not related to military service when much of the evidence in the claims folder states the exact opposite. VA examiners need to held more responsible in the claims process.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN (US)

    I have been working at US Department of Veterans Affairs full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Serving veterans and making a difference, great benefits and employee wellness programs, great educational and training opportunities, job security, opportunities to transfer within the US.

    Cons

    Very political atmosphere, little opportunities to advance, feels like decisions are made based on administration rather than veteran care, treated like an hourly employee rather than salaried, no flexible scheduling/work from home/job sharing, red tape is frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance employees based on performance and really listen to employee feedback.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
