To excel as an employer, it’s essential to know what’s working for employees and what isn’t. So let’s take a look at some recent Glassdoor reviews to see where our organization is thriving and where it can improve.
The best of VA
Among the numerous strengths noted are outstanding benefits and perks. These include the Federal Employees Retirement System (one of the top retirement plans available), as well as generous paid time off, flexible scheduling and other offerings that help ensure a healthy work-life balance.
Career growth and mobility also make the list, thanks in part to our wealth of education support, variety of specialties, and large number of locations throughout the nation. Additionally, only one state clinical license is needed to practice at any VA facility, allowing for advancement with minimal boundaries.
Above all, team members here enjoy serving patients who have served America. It’s a unique chance to give back to those who’ve given so much for our country. And it’s an honor that comes with unmatched fulfillment, both professionally and personally.
Opportunities for improvement
As the largest integrated health care system in the United States, VA requires thousands of workers, so staffing can be challenging. This is especially true when it comes to hard-to-fill positions such as physician, nursing, pharmacy and managerial roles.
In turn, we offer several hiring programs and incentives designed to attract, develop and retain quality leaders, medical specialists, interns and other people who share our commitment to clinical and service excellence. We also regularly participate in various career-related events nationwide to boost our recruitment efforts. Through these and other initiatives, we continue to build a team of highly satisfied – and productive – employees.
