I have been working at US Air Force full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Clearly defined chain of command, duties/responsibilities, pay and benefits, and future opportunities. Great upward mobility if you meet the requirements.

Cons

Bureaucracy can cause significant delays in processing personnel/HR actions. The pay starts low but has the potential to go up over the course of time. Frankly, you can expect to be a two-income family.

Advice to Management

Consider job location and local cost of living when computing salary start range.

    Advice to Management

    Stay involved with mentoring the younger Airman. Have a good Awards and Decoration Program. Airman deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments. If you want to keep your Airman motivated and unit morale high, submit Airman for Awards and Decs.

    I worked at US Air Force full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Teamwork. It wasn't hard to motivate people to be part of the team and get the job done. Due to officer assignment rotations, your bosses changed frequently. Financial assistance to obtain a Masters degree was good. Living in Europe for 5 years was a benefit too.

    Cons

    Short notice deployments that could last 7 days or 180 days. Years of congressional special interest rules makes budgeting and procurement a real difficult event. Frequent reassignments made setting up a household or getting an advanced degree a real challange.
