Approves of CEO

I have been working at US Air Force full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great training, growth rewarded, leadership training, available mentorship, structure, responsibility. If you enjoy what you are doing, theres plenty to keep you from boredom. Pay increase for responsibly increase most of the time.

Cons

Long hours, large bureaucracy, questionable leadership at times, hypocrisy, depending on your job privacy may be an issue, loss of typical civilian freedoms (speech, protest, etc). The further you climb the ladder, the more political you must become. Your actual job will mean less and less and your ability to play the game and get people to do certain things will keep you employed for the most part.

Advice to Management

Eventually, the system will have to change if you want to keep talent around.

    Benefits, healthcare, base ammenities at most places, most people are great. Oppurtunies to grow are there with a mutlitude of ways of accomplishing them.

    Anything past mid-tier NCO leadership is full of bureaucracy. Don't expect too many leaders to stick their neck out for you. You are just a number here.
