    I have been working at US Air Force full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always have a job. You always get paid on time and you're not in the army.

    Cons

    You're in the military you don't have much choice in some of the things you have to do.

    Advice to Management

    80% of the enlisted core's management is horrible. I recomond that you should have at least your CCAF to be qualified to become an E-6 or higher. Most of my managers who had degree's were much more successful than those without.

    I worked at US Air Force full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Experience that translates well to private sector, extensive travel, discipline and training integrity and experience in the field. Building strong teamwork skills, improving self of sense, direction and learning about one's own strengths and limitations.

    Cons

    Long-term commitment, very demanding/rigorous, boot camp/basic training. Not necessarily for everyone; honorable service available elsewhere in Navy, Army, Marine Corps, etc as well as civilian contractors. Occasional disrespect from those who view AF as not serious.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger support for honorably discharged veterans
