    I worked at New York Army National Guard part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    GI BIll is the best that you can get from this organization. There are no perks, and if you're not in the good ole boy club, you can forget about promotions.

    Cons

    Lack of quality leadership, unfair treatment of those that are not "in the club". Very unprofessional, unorganized, and I wouldn't recommend joining even to my worst enemy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all soldiers the same. Stop favoring those who fit in with the in crowd. Higher level NCO's are the reason that this organization needs a good audit.
