    Great Experience, but be prepared to move every 2-4 years as an Officer

    Commander (Current Employee)
    Ogden, UT

    ProsA chance to work with some great people, a chance to contribute, lead people and acquire some critical skills. An opportunity to travel and see the world. A decent salary. Teamwork and camaraderie.

    ConsWorking with some dismal people disguised as leaders; uprooting your family every 2-3 years takes a toll on your family. Friends come and go. No roots. Emotional toll on your children. Deployments can wreak havoc on a family. If you do not have a strong family network, it can be very difficult to survive. Back stabbing people who only care about their careers and are only interested in themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMentor your people, help them succeed, take care of them. Dont treat them as numbers like many so called leaders do.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great career opportunities but getting worse.

    Various (Current Employee)
    Ogden, UT

    ProsExcellent leadership development opportunities. Benefits.

    ConsHighly stressful environment with long periods deployed away from family.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDue to limited control over Air Force operations my advice is geared more towards Congress then Air Force leaders. Congress needs to realize that what is best for the country as a whole is not always best for your district or state. If you can't make sacrifices in the best interest of the country then you need to go.
