Pros

The NG provides great opportunities for a post-secondary education at little or no cost. Great progression and leadership training for future careers. This is a part time organization with opportunities for full-time.

Cons

As a military entity, there is always a potential for deployment. Not an organization to be a part of "just for the benefits". Must be willing and able to dedicate at least one weekend a month and 2 weeks per year for duty, which requires an absence from home.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

From my view, there appears to be a glass ceiling in the senior leadership positions. More transparent efforts should be made by the HR office to mentor minority junior leaders for growth.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits they come with the job.

    Cons

    The senior management is awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on the readiness NCOs to do their paperwork. I wanted to stay in but wanted change my MOS and unit and my senior management gave me the round about because I wouldn't reenlist on their books. Now I am now ready to ETS.
