      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at US Air Force full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Many options on where to live, healthcare, education benefits, good work environment/culture, never have to choose what to wear to work.

      Cons

      Little/no say on where to live or what you're doing.

      Advice to Management

      Give the younger officers what they want and leaders will naturally rise.

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I worked at US Air Force full-time

      Pros

      At a young age you can gain unparalleled leadership experience and special skills in the USAF. There are opportunities for travel and to work outside of your designated field of responsibility often. If you do not choose to stay in this profession until retirement, there are extensive opportunities for education and careers with veteran status.

      Cons

      Sometimes it can be difficult to schedule your personal time as the job can require working at strange times, long hours, and frequent or unexpected travel.

      I worked at US Air Force full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Secure job, travel, education opportunities

      Cons

      Don't get to see family.

      Advice to Management

      Use people more properly based on their skills, not on the throw a dart at the board system it seems to be.

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at US Air Force

      Pros

      Great benefits in terms of tax free allowances and premium free health care. Great job satisfaction and world travel that allows you to experience many perspectives and cultures.

      Cons

      Long deployments of 7 months to a year could affect home/family life. Moves every 2-4 years could disrupt family life as well as being away from extended family.

      Advice to Management

      Great opportunity to gain travel, education, worldly experiences as preparation for future civilian employment. Recommend taking advantage of ROTC trials to try out military life while possibly providing scholarships to college.

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at US Air Force for more than 20 years

      Pros

      World-class opportunity to have a global impact, peerless community, exceptional team mates, compelling mission, transformational training, pockets of caring & committed leadership. There is no equivalent team out there.

      Cons

      Shrinking resources, relentless operations tempo, vicious bureaucracy, transitioning culture all combine to detract from mission focus and exact a toll on the entire force.

      Advice to Management

      What an amazing team and way of life. Thank you for the privilege of serving. Continue to fight the battle against encroaching administrative and ancillary demands. The drain on the mission is much higher than you can perceive or measure.

      I have been working at US Air Force full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Benefits out weigh the politics. Sense of community. Ability to lead. Education benefits are top notch. Ability to travel is awesome.

      Cons

      A lot of who you know and not merit based recognition. Deployments can get very tiring and repetitive. Will burn you out.

      Advice to Management

      Fix your personnel system (promotions, assignments, evaluations)

      I have been working at US Air Force full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      You get a higher level of job stability than in the private sector. Great medical and retirement benefits. 30 days of paid leave a year, cumulative to a maximum of 75 days before you start relinquishing them. You get the opportunity to travel and get benefits for after you separate.

      Cons

      The price to pay for the above is no freedom of choosing where you live. There is a very structured process for development that is, of course, decided not by yourself but by the organization. Academic achievement is highly discouraged, unless you plan on getting a bs online degree from a mediocre university. The organization itself discourages academic professionalization in favor of organizational culture; they develop...

      Advice to Management

      Change the professional development focus and empower people to make professional development decisions of their own, or you are going to continue losing the most qualified Officers and retaining the mediocre crowd that just want stability at a government job.
