    I have been working at US National Guard as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Traveling to and shooting in exciting places all over the country. Working with dedicated individuals. Building your resume and portfolio with a reputable organization, The pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape. Unfortunately, the Military doesn't function in a way that promotes creativity. There is a lot of time spent dealing with oversight to insure proper use of funds. Lots of people who have to check with other people who have to check with other people before you're approved to do anything. No real interest in doing anything new. Sometimes hard to do what needs to be done with obsolete gear or software. Very little attention to efficiency. Leadership is most concerned with their potential for advancement in rank, not making killer video. No opportunity for advancement within the civilian workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone who understands production to run your production department. Creatives are different than grunts, and need an environment that is supportive of the creative process, and open to new ideas for maximizing efficiency.
