I worked at US Air Force full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

As for pros of the US Air Force, it gives experience, education, knowledge in an array of fields, discipline, travel if desired (or required), a sense of accomplishment, honor and tradition, and a perfect start for most young people to guide them to a career path.

Cons

There wouldn't be any cons, except that the military is alive because we, as a nation, must defend our country, therefore war is sometimes inevitable and requires our military members who have volunteered their lives and the lives of their families to be at risk of familial separation and/or travel to undesirable locations around the world to continue to provide the United States of America its freedoms for its citizens.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Every member of the military, enlisted or officer, is a human being: bound to make mistakes, and also capable of amazing accomplishments.

    I have been working at US Air Force full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The experiences and opportunities are endless. There is a focus on the people. It is typical for very young troop to be put in positions with great responsibilities which allows them to learn valuable lessons otherwise unavailable.

    Cons

    A lot of functions are now being centralized so there is less focus on customer service. This is often frustrating for people trying to get pay or personnel issues taken care of.

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

    Pros

    Engaging and diverse work with an engaging and diverse workforce. Good federal benefits.

    Cons

    Good benefits could be axed if you're shot in head. Engaging work means you'll be working 80 hours a week without over time for a salary that is less than 1/2 of what you could make commercially. They'll tell you those benefits are worth the difference, but in most cases, they're wrong.
