Pros

Good educational benefits if you do not serve overseas and excellent educational benefits if you serve multiple tours overseas. Decent medical and dental benefits (if you do not mind making a small co-payment every month), Good work experience (if you do not mind traveling, getting deployed, or dealing with different levels of leadership within this organization). Mostly importantly, taking the pride in your work and the fact that you are serving your country.

Cons

This organization can take you away from your home, job, and loved ones most of the time because of training, deployments, professional development schools, and MOS schools/classes. Since this organization can have each soldier away from their home, job, and loved ones for extended periods of time, the hardships that each soldier endures from these requirements start to out weigh the benefits that are earned from serving in this organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to take care of your soldiers, which means the low enlisted soldiers should come first.

    Pros

    Good benefits such as health insurance, college tuition assistance, federal techniican program

    Cons

    perhaps some of them most toxic leadership I've ever encountered,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the mindset of the Guard out from combat operation in foreign lands and back to what the Guard is really about, helping out in the community during disasters, training to use chainsaws and other tools to help out when tree are downed, setting up disaster relief points for supplys.

    Pros

    The National Guard Pay for college.

    Cons

    The promotion process is unfair because in can be 1 on the state promotion list but they give it to their friends .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say if you want to be in the military and have a job you should join the regular Army.
