    Pros

    You get to support National Defenses and travel to places you never knew existed. Met people from all over the world and make life long friends and family.

    Cons

    Periodically away from home and family. Household moves can occur often so keeping large family keepsakes can be drag on the process. Leaving good friends for me ones...

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is a people business

    Advice to Management

    Airmen do not know the basics of their jobs anymore. MPFs do not have the core knowledge they did 10 years ago. For get the soft people skills training, and get back to functional training.

    Pros

    I think you can learn some good management skills, along with integrity, service before self

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

    Pros

    Ability to serve your country and work with people and technolgies that are awesome. More responsibility as a twentysomething than most will ever know.

    Cons

    Long hours, some less-than-ideal work locations, and significant time away from family and loved ones. A profession, not a job.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and let them do what they think is right.
