    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Education benefits, housing and substance allowances, free medical and dental, get to see and explore different places around the world on the AF dime, great people to work with, and experiences that will last a lifetime.

    Cons

    Must be able to perform at your best under pressure, conform to the rules they set forth even though you may not agree with some of them, work abroad at a moments notice, away from home and family for long periods of time, and PT tests.


  2. "A Fulfilling challenge that has much more than monitary rewards."

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

    Pros

    I've been able to travel the world, lead smart people and provide for my family. The people I've worked with and been able to meet will be with me always. The comradarie is what I will miss the most.

    Cons

    Long stints away from home are the largest detractor. Obviously, in the military it is expected that you deploy overseas in defense of the Nation. It is never easy, but even those experiences have fond memories.

    Advice to Management

    Right sizing the Force is important and it must not be a "feast or famine" environment
