I have been working at US National Guard part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good educational benefits if you do not serve overseas and excellent educational benefits if you serve multiple tours overseas. Decent medical and dental benefits (if you do not mind making a small co-payment every month), Good work experience (if you do not mind traveling, getting deployed, or dealing with different levels of leadership within this organization). Mostly importantly, taking the pride in your work and the fact that you are serving your country.

Cons

This organization can take you away from your home, job, and loved ones most of the time because of training, deployments, professional development schools, and MOS schools/classes. Since this organization can have each soldier away from their home, job, and loved ones for extended periods of time, the hardships that each soldier endures from these requirements start to out weigh the benefits that are earned from serving in this organization.

Advice to Management

Learn to take care of your soldiers, which means the low enlisted soldiers should come first.
