    I have been working at US Air Force full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They definitely support you financially in terms of healthcare and dental as well as access to the thousands of dollars of benefits available to you annually. In addition, they offer the "opportunities" to travel and see the world.

    Cons

    Most of the "world" I saw was primarily in the Desert Sands of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. I was stuck in South Dakota for eight years before separating. Job placement is almost random if you do not come in with a guaranteed slot, if the job you have doesn't gel with you, too bad your stuck with it for years until your in a "retrain window".

    Advice to Management

    Reinstate the PCS, and allow the Base Swap program again. In addition allow for retrain post 3-5 level CDC's completion.
