    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Kansas Air National Guard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great way to serve your country in the community that you live in. The people in the guard are like family to me. I have been in the same unit for over 32 years and have had the opportunity to train in a variety of different career fields.

    Cons

    Deployments and time away from family and kids. Once a month drill weekend takes away from family and kid events. Like with other large corporations, dealing with a large bureaucracy can be a pain.

    Advice to Management

    Support your fellow military members, recognize talent and foster those that will better the workforce. Mentorship works up, down, and sideways. No matter where you are in your career, continue to mentor the future generation of military members.

    Pros

    Outstanding pay and bennifits. The satisfaction of making a difference. Travel around the world. Disaster relief, defending the country. Working with great people.

    Cons

    You are tied to the military for a number of years. You can be told to do things you would rather not do. If the leadership is bad your life is bad, luckily most of the time leadership is good.

    Advice to Management

    Actually I found the leadership quite good in general. They have excelent mission focus and put their people first I would continue they way they are going.

    Pros

    Travel opportunities are career field specific, some jobs travel while others travel only a couple of weeks per year. Undergraduate education is provided for full time members. Job stress is minimal, though finding an open full time position can be challenging. Once in you are in and the Wing will ensure you keep a job in the evnt your current job goes away. Opportunites exists for deployments, some good some bad, it is a chance but over all worth it.

    Cons

    As a full-time employee, promotions are stagnated at best. Upward mobility stops at E-6, unless you are well liked by upper management. the "good old boy" system remains in effect. Guard magic happens and positions get moved with certain people as they advance while others stand still for years.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on performace not on who you like!
