Approves of CEO

I have been working at US Department of Defense full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

A lifetime membership to a non-advertised brotherhood known formally as the NCO Corps. The opportunity to grow as a leader and develop learning skills that go beyond the classroom.

Cons

The hours can be long, and not every job holds a lot of glamour. In the end there is good and bad to all careers, serving in the military is and always will be what toy make it. Not really a whole lot of bad things to say.

Advice to Management

Never forget that you weren't always at the top. If the focus is on the team in the trench, that team will create miracles.
