Pros

Family, Friends, travel, Deployments are short (vs other services) Technology advancement easy the separation from families, Benefits the ones that are left, education (don't put them off like I did)
Education

Cons

PT program(s), Reduction of benefits even after you sign up, As you progress it's less about doing your job and more about getting boxes checked off to compete for the next promotion. Direction the NCOA is headed. EPR system

Advice to Management

More education on how and why you should contribute to TSP, Finish CDC's and clep everything possible, Once cleps are done begin online classed, if schedule permits attend actual classes as needed.
   When is comes to PT the Air Force program is not even enough to get you by you have to work out more than the 1 hour three times a week they may give you. Understand what Airmen are doing to try pass this test. If you only knew the terrible things some are doing in an attempt to pass.
   Create a data base (like ARMS) to save all awards and important documents these will be needed in the future.
   When it comes to EPRs we all know they are inaccurate 99% of the time, they are inflated to help Airmen with promotion and retention. Create a weekly scoring system for Airman, at the end of the week score your Airmen on what they accomplished that week (0-100) Section Commanders would review to insure that not everyone gets 100 every week. At the end of 45 weeks or so tally the scores and compare this to the rest of the Airmen in the shop/section/office. It would be just like grading papers use the score. The Super would be your fail safe to insure folks were not inflating the scores. Yes I know this could be a burden, but with Rank comes responsibilities.

    Pros

    It teaches you responsibility, how to be a strong person, a hard working employee, and most of all it makes you realize everyone needs to do their part to keep our country on top.

    Cons

    The possibility of being away from your family and having many people come into and out of your life. You will also be a changed person if you go into combat, but you can make the change for the better if you work at it.

    Advice to Management

    Let the lower ranking troops know they are contributing to making our country better.


  2. If you have the drive to serve and the desire to be challenged intellectually and physically, think about the USAF.

    Pros

    Educational and leadership opportunities are at the top of Air Force pros. The workplace is diverse. The pay is competitive and health benifits are the Caddilac of healthcare.

    Cons

    A lot of the best officers retire early leaving average officers in high ranking positions and positions of influence. Creativity and innovation is lost when the best retire early.

    Advice to Management

    Add incentives to creative thought. Incentives are more than monetary.
