    Advice to Management

    Quit being "yes" men or women. Recognize when your resources and subordinates are stretched thin and relay that to higher. Make a conscious effort to refrain from having favorites and promote your subordinates based on merit. And don't be afraid to demote your subordinates as well. It is best to cut the cancer out before it infects the rest. Document everything; evidence is key.

    Pros

    Protecting your nation, contributing to society, working with some of America's finest people, and experiencing things that can only be experienced in the military.

    Cons

    Long month combat deployments. People sometimes try to kill you. Becoming too corporate and politically correct and back to the zero tolerance policy. With the current downsizing loyalty has become a one-way street.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the reflective belts, it's queer. Focus on war fighting skills rather than who's wearing their sunglasses on their head.
