"There are not enough positive words to describe the experience, opportunities and growth in any VA system."

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Employee

"The top management at the Dept. of Veterans Affairs in Long Beach do not treat their employees with respect and dignity. My best Supervisor at the VA had retired on March 31, 2020. After She retired the new Supervisor was a tyrant, abrasive, obnoxious, and arrogant to the employees under him. The top three management treated the employees in the same way."

"It's a poorly run organization, "lead" (if one uses the term loosely) by political appointees with little field experience. Communication is horrible, human resources are dysfunctional, and the overall culture is dismal."

"I've worked with Long Island University's Student Veteran's Resource Center. The resource center is a great work environment that is constantly encouraging and improving the school environment towards student veterans on campus. The resource center also provides great opportunities for veterans both in and outside of the campus to ensure that veterans are transitioning back to the civilian lifestyle."

"I've worked for the VA for 5 years. Management uses you up and once they can't use you anymore they try to get rid of you. Consistently understaffed and HR is in no hurry to fill vacant positions. Since I have worked at the VA we have had 6 hospital directors."
