ASSOCIATE MEDICAL CENTER DIRECTOR (Former Employee) – Walla Walla, WA – February 23, 2018
Depending on which VA one works, leadership can be problematic. The good ole boy system is alive and well within the VA. Highly skilled and educated people ascend to leadership, but are poor leaders due to little or no leadership training, which could create disharmony and low employee morale, in certain VA's.
Also, low performing employees are not held accountable because many low performing supervisors don't want to devote the time required to discipline, fighting the unions and EEO representatives.
Fortunately, by far, the mission of the VA keeps one engaged with the VA healthcare system.
