    Pros

    Good graduate opportunities. Good chance to lead at a very junior level, so the first 10 years is pretty exciting.

    Cons

    The organization is top heavy due to low attrition. This makes it complicated to lead after being in the organization for 15 years, since most folks are over 20 with no where to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep mid-grade officers in the field and reduce to size of HQ units. Additionally, officers and enlisted with more than 20 years active duty must be aggressively weeded out of the service if they are just retired on active duty.


  2. Good Job, Poor Leadership
