    I worked at US Transportation Command full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place to work. A mix of other military services, contractors, and government employees. There is plenty of upward movement.

    Cons

    With all these different military, services, etc. it is hard to make sure everyone is on the same page as in understanding.

    I have been working at US Transportation Command full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Motivated, well educated professionals, comprised of military, civilian and contractor personnel. Outstanding leaders with a clear mission and vision for the organization.

    Cons

    Doesn't do a good enough job of hiring non-AF civil service personnel into this joint organization. Most, if not all civil service positions are announced as "AF internal only", so other DoD and federal civil servants cannot apply to be considered. Really a short sighted personnel policy which goes against the very idea of a true "joint" organization. US Transportation Command needs more Navy and Army civil servants... we have way too many AF civil servants... and I'm an AF officer!

    Pros

    Great mission, you feel like you accomplish something important every day! Very service oriented with a core value that making others succeed is what makes your role important,

    Cons

    Work life balance can be challenging, but with most things important, that is almost always the case.

    Advice to Management

    Be genuinely transparent with the customer base and push to eliminate useless tasks that serve no purpose

    Pros

    USTRANSCOM provides full-spectrum global mobility solutions and related enabling capabilities for supported customers' requirements in peace and war.

    Cons

    Global mission and partnership with commercial industry exposes USTRANSCOM to many external malicious cyber attacks and terrorism threats.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest on cyber threat mitigation strategies and tools, as well as foreign entity vetting resources to combat threats from foreign intelligence entities, terrorist groups and organize crime syndicates.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at US Transportation Command full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Higher pay scale than typical civil service position.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Even worse supervisory/middle managers than the average government agency. Poor review process. The process is more important than the product. Treat the customers like idiots and treat all contractors like they are 100% out to cheat the government.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and trust the average line employee.
