I worked at National Guard

Pros

They develop leadership skills and promote from within
It's a smaller organization with a family atmosphere
You're a government employee during the week and military one weekend a month
You determine how far you want to go
Education benefits, travel opportunities (to good places as well as not so good)
People stay here for life.

Cons

Some deadwood employees b/c it's government
Don't p*ss anyone off, because they could be your next boss
A bad reputation will follow you for years
Money is good but less than public sector; however, benefits and job security are good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to force people to move around into different jobs every few years. People camp out in positions and become stagnant.

    I have been working at National Guard

    Pros

    30 days paid vacation and all federal holidays, service to country, great pay and retirement program, free medical to family, GSA vehicle provided, laptop computer provided, Blackberry smart phone provided

    Cons

    All new enlistments will be deployed during their six year enlistment, weekend drills are now three to four or more days long which puts a hardship on families, employers, and college students. Senior officers fraternize with lower enlisted solders. Officers at all levels are only concerned with themselves and their careers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce the chain of command, do not let lower enlisted determine the decision making to the officers in charge. This should be done by the senior enlisted leadership. Senior leadership should show confidence in their soldiers, not create a threatening atmosphere.
