    Pros

    A job that offers unparalleled opportunities, leadership challenges (in a positive way), and some really good perks.

    Where in the world can one be paid to keep fit - go for a run early in the morning or hit the gym / swimming pool. You get a chance to see almost the entire length and breadth of the nation and sometimes other countries as well. More than the money, it is the hundreds of salutes that one gets everyday, which propels one to lead from the front.

    Cons

    There are no cons as I see it
