    I have been working at Air Force Institute of Technology as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    AFIT has provided me with an opportunity to do interesting and meaningful work while working toward my degree. In addition to paying for my education, my stipend helps to justify spending the time to get an advanced degree instead of going directly into the job market.

    Cons

    While the faculty try to avoid having the students' work impacted by the federal bureaucracy, it does sometimes impact the work in a negative way.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Air Force Institute of Technology as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment. They don't have any consumers, so there is little day to day stress, only around when contracts are due.

    Cons

    Lack of any management made trying to get help a pain, as well as what to do.

    I worked at Air Force Institute of Technology as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule. They were very willing to work around my needs, despite the fact that I was only an intern.
    - Great chance to work with prototype and on-the-fringes technology.
    - Good opportunity to work with graduate students and get a feel for graduate life.
    - Good opportunities for self-ownership of projects.
    - Intelligent and technically-informed leadership.

    Cons

    - It's on an Air Force Base, so interns are subject to military red tape.
    - Traffic. The morning commute is no fun.

    Advice to Management

    I was only an intern, so hardly qualified to talk about management style, etc. I'd just say keep it up. I had a wonderful time learning and working under well-qualified and intelligent people.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Air Force Institute of Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The working environment was professional but friendly and comfortable. Training was offered to help employees meet the government requirements for the positions and when needed to support new technology.

    Cons

    Transitioning the largely contractor based workforce to government civil service positions was stressful and some employees had to take a pay cut to stay in their positions once the transition was completed, though in return they had the benefit of a secure government job.

    I worked at Air Force Institute of Technology as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lot's of freedom, good guidance, everyone is very friendly and helpful. Great work/life balance. One can pretty much choose their schedule as long as the hours get completed.

    Cons

    Advisor not free all days. Often teaching, going to meetings, or not in office.

    Advice to Management

    No paid time off for my contract. Didn't get access to facilities either although it could be due to my short contract.
