    I have been working at US Air Force full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and opportunities for training and education through GI Bill.

    Many ways to develop your managerial and leadership skills

    Cons

    The Air Force is starting to shift away from its core - "People"

    There has been a noticeable difference since sequestration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to refocus on its core which are the people. There are some rough roads ahead if this is not made more of a priority versus modernization.
