Decent job security, but not a lot of upward mobility for civilians

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

Pros

Great benefits ... fairly secure, though the two furloughs last year didn't help.

Cons

Not a lot of promotion opportunities. Have to fight for developmental education and training

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower your employees more -- give them the resources and clear direction they need, then give them the flexibility to execute.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The training and supervisory opportunities are endless. Great way to get an education.

    Cons

    Too much depends on the job, base, leadership, etc. Times are tough in the military right now. It's very difficult to plan non-work activities, always "on duty'" and working long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a shift in priorities. People who do their primary job well work hard but don't see any "benefits". There's too much focus on other jobs, Master's degrees, PME, etc.
