Pros

Good organization to work for. Really cares about it's people. Going through a downsizing of late and opportunities to move up are harder to come by.

Cons

Expectation that you move every four years and will not have too many options regarding location. You can list your preferences, but ultimately will be given military orders to a unit that needs someone with your skill set.

    Frequently you will have to stand duty watches on weekends or evenings.

    Advice to Management

    Contrinue creating opportunities for High School Grads.
