  2. "It's the military. It has the good the bad and the ugly just like you hear and read about."

    Current Employee - Lieutenant, CEC in Patuxent River, MD

    Pros

    Benefits, leave, pay is ok. Pride in work can sometimes be unparalleled. Most of the time the teamwork is like no where else and the leadership opportunities are granted to everyone.

    Cons

    You are 24/7. Work life balance and work culture changes with your boss which is at the most every three years, sometimes sooner. Loading you up with work until you break is not uncommon. Funding for programs is unsustainable.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the guys at the field/tactical level. The decisions made in the ivory towers have very bad consequences for those implementing them.
