Pros

Supporting the war fighters who protect us. Modified 9/80 work schedule. Broad exposure to various technologies.

Cons

Compensation not always inline with responsibilities of position; especially when exceptional performance leads to additional responsibilities without being given additional comp.
Middle management often fails to follow company values. Expectation (need) to work additional hours beyond scheduled.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't portray yourselves as following the ITIL Framework when there is no effective CMDB in place. Review employee workloads.
