    I have been working at National Defence and the Canadian Forces full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working under the most extreme conditions on the planet, but with rewards that cannot possibly be matched (defending countries around the world, and Canadians at home)

    Cons

    A lot of moving around the country and world, with little choice in the matter

    I worked at National Defence and the Canadian Forces full-time

    Pros

    More opportunity, professional development, and world-wide experience than I ever though possible, particularly when I was 19 years old and thought I knew everything but realized quickly how wrong I was! Excitement, word class training followed by experience in a related field. The opportunity to develop constantly and get promoted at regular intervals in rank, salary, and responsibility is unmatched anywhere in the world. In a world where there still exists job discrimination and pay discrimination based on sex, this is the only true equal opportunity where you are paid according to your qualifications, period.

    Cons

    You must accept that you are not entirely in control of your destiny. Don't fight it, this is actually a good thing. It's hard on families from time to time but the pros far outweigh the cons in every respect.
