    I have been working at UK Ministry of Defence full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Variety of jobs, deliberate and extensive training, opportunities to excell in chosen areas, element of danger, some control over next position/role

    Cons

    Restricted time in each post regardless of success, limited opportunity to progress within some specialisations, impact on family when away, pay is lower than many competitors due to the hooks of pension and profile

    Keep engaging with the people around them, not through their functional areas of interest
