Pros

You can get a bonus as an enlisted soldier that will amount to the additional money, in comparison to enlisted, that a commissioned officer makes in 1 year. You will receive "hooah" respect as an officer, which basically means that it is your job to receive respect and the enlisted's coercion to give such respect.

You will get plenty of time to work on your farmer's tan as a lower enlisted.

You will get health benefits that are hard to utilize due to a faulty and poorly managed military system, which degrades those who seek medical help: in order to save a dime for the military.

You will get an extreme tolerance for nonsensical work, rash micro-management, and coerced camaraderie which will be excellent on a resume for an employer who wants employees who can be pushed to their limits, devoting all to the profit of the CEO; as this is the goal for an enlisted soldier: further your commissioned officer's careers.

Cons

Working to further the careers of bureaucratic officers who have little regard for lives of soldiers and a sense of duty when it comes to caring about anything.

Favoritism, nepotism, conservative propaganda, army propaganda, hypocritical management, extended work hours for the purpose of doing extra menial tasks: i.e. police calling, straightening out vehicles, washing windows, reorganizing connexes, rechecking this or that, having drawn-out formations with long-winded leaders, being constantly criticized and grouped together with all of the dirtbags that you work around and that the army helps to create with it's general abuse of soldiers and their personal time.

Wide-spread disorganization, being blamed for the mistakes of those above you, being punished for the mistakes of those superior to you, false motivation highly promoted, nepotist pencil-whipping.

General malevolence of those in charge; whenever situations can be made worse and the chain of command can get away with it, they do.

In-your-face dishonesty, threats for every problem, system run by fear and scarcity.

Consistently "preparing" for deployments that will never happen. Everything you do being treated as a priority and as "serious business" regardless of the entire lack of precedence and commonsense regarding the tasks, deployment status, and relevance of the actual MOS in combat zones.

Barracks rooms that are white-glove inspected, invasion of privacy, consistent harassment, being forced to clean barracks building at 0500 in the morning, 12 ft. by 12 ft. rooms with shared bathroom for 4 soldiers; all the while the Air Force is getting rooms that have at least one bathroom and sink per Airman, and if not that, then they get additional pay for "lowered standards of living".

GO AIRFORCE!

Advice to Management

Have self-respect, respect others, follow the army values, use integrity; one of the army values, have some backbone as that is part of your creed as an NCO.

    Pros

    It is a great place to work. It is a quiet place and do not have to worry about billable. At the end of the day great place to work.

    Cons

    The only downsize is that it is a quiet location. We are in the middle of a war and the chance of deployment is great.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is great. Keep an eye on some senior leadership that tends to abuse power.
