    Pros

    Medical / dental / education benefits. Decent pay. Locations around the globe. There's lots of room for professional growth. Most required training is provided.

    Cons

    Some of those in management positions didn't get there because they are the best at what they were assigned to do. These people had no idea how to handle crises.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with the whole "follow orders first, ask questions later" mentality. It keeps Airmen from discovering new/better ways of doing things.

    Pros

    Steady and stable life with family and self education a priority; when not deployed.

    Cons

    Multiple deployments away from family can take its toll on the stability of home-life.

    Pros

    The USAF offers amazing worldwide experiences and educational opportunities. They encourage self-improvement, cultivate leaders, and provide diverse, hands-on experience you will find nowhere else.

    Cons

    You must be willing to serve your country in whatever capacity is required, including in deployed locations. You have some influence over assignment locations and specialty codes, but ultimately those facets are subject to the needs of the AF.

    Pros

    There is always a feeling of belonging to a team and the organization looks after it folks. You get to travel and see the world.

    Cons

    You are constantly having to travel which causes separation. You will move around multiple times in your career so it is hard to establish roots in a community.

    Advice to Management

    Play close attention to those around you. This work environment can be stressful at times. always gives your leadership an honest answer and not what you think they want to hear.

    Pros

    The Air Force provides a great way of life while learning a trade. The people that you meet along the way makes the journey worth it's wild.

    Cons

    There are not too many cons. For those with families sometimes you are away from your families for extended periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    There is not much that I can say about this. Leadership does the best job that they can to make sure everyone is well taken care of.

    Pros

    I have traveled all over the word as a K-9 Handler! Some places were dangerous and others were way too much fun!

    Cons

    If you have a family you will be away from them A LOT in the beginning... but it gets better as the years go by.

    Pros

    The USAF Medical Service offered an excellent career choice with outstanding benefits while active duty and upon retirement after 20 years of service.

    Cons

    Deployments to stations around the world under hazardous and deadly conditions are possible. However, such deployments are rare in the medical field.

    Advice to Management

    Continuously mentor officers to be prepared to assume greater responsibility.
