    Pros

    See the world; builds discipline; experience the reward and the results of hard work; job grows with you

    Cons

    As elsewhere, becomes more political the more senior you become; inefficient; bureaucratic and difficult to implement change; lacks agility and flexibility (except in specialized groups)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoting from within is a necessity because of experience requirements; however, leaders should also recognize its weaknesses. The military could benefit by taking deliberate steps to avoid like-minded thinking and other decision making process biases such as anchoring, inattentional blindness, committment, etc. Human tendency is to like people in the in-group (like oneself). Continuously promoting in-group has long term consequences and may result in a weaker organization in the future.
