    I have been working at US Air Force full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -Mission, service, protect and defend the United States.
    -Altruistic, dedicated people, team spirit.
    -Opportunity for training, education, and advancement

    Cons

    -Endless morass of bureaucratic "additional duties" to manage that distract from the primary job due to significant downsizing and hollowing of the force
    -Little room for intellectual creativity/curiosity
    -Performance does not determine pay or advancement until at least 10 years of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set few rules and enforce the hell out of them. The current norm is: make a rule, enforce it lightly, and refer back to it to cover your ass when something goes wrong. There is a large gap between our stated values and values in practice (alcohol-centric culture is tolerated but a few are pilloried via ADAPT, widespread infidelity is tolerated, etc.)
