The Atlanta VA Medical Center is not a very healty place to work.
Program Support Assistant (Current Employee) – Newnan, GA – October 8, 2018
I have been at the Atlanta VA, working at one of they outlying CBOC's for close to 9 years and I've seen a marked decline in morale. There is a big culture of nepotism, so if you know how to brown nose and rub elbows with the right people, you are on your way up... even if you are not qualified for certain positions. It's all who, not what, you know. It's VERY disheartening to see the focus on numbers and the lack of true patient care. The providers are worked to the point of exhaustion (as are all employees) to see as many patients as possible. The "leadership" works in a bubble without any thought, knowledge or concern of how their decisions affect patient care or employee morale.
Not worth losing your mental health and becoming apathetic
