    Negative Outlook

    I worked at US Department of Defense full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Promotions were slow but normal with the government. The job great. I Loved working there but I needed to finish school. Just the change in the government climate is what made it so difficult to keep up with.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge was the changing climate in the workforce and the Army as a whole.


  2. "Department of the Air Force is hard to promote, unless you're in good with a hiring manager, who manipulate HR."

    Pros

    Working with our service members and the benefits (medical, dental, holidays)
