    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Illinois Army National Guard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay, Helping Soldiers, very dynamic duties. Incredible room for advancement and career changes. Was not micro Managed and was allowed wide latitude in decision making. Reimbursed for travel.

    Cons

    Corruption. Horrible leaders and co-workers. Constantly required to travel, really impacts quality of family time. Very disorganized Battalion. Soldiers would rarely take responsibility and backstabbing for personal gain was systemic.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say, they are corrupt and they know it. Relearn the concepts of Honor, Integrity and Duty. We as WarFighters are supposed to lead by example. We should strive for excellence and honor in all our endeavors.

    I have been working at Illinois Army National Guard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent College Tuition, many great people,, multiple opportunities unavailable to civilians or general population, excellent healthcare, some extremely talented leaders and human capital within organization.

    Cons

    State & Federal Government bureaucracy, good ol' boy networks, integrity issues among senior enlisted leadership, 0 oversight over the recruiting department, displacement of actual leadership and talent acquisition. Finally, officer leadership that does not wish to know about actual issues that would correct problems or serious organizational issues. Violators of policies and regulation tend to be promoted, not reprimanded nor investigated.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved, rather than rely on hearsay. It's about people, not numbers.
