    I have been working at Hill Air Force Base full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Time off and pay for what is required. Like working 4 - 10's, can work as much OT as desired.

    Cons

    The culture on base is ridiculous. No regard for rules or regulations. Common answer for any question: "It's the way it's always been done". A lot of fat that needs to be trimmed.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable.
