I have enjoyed my 12+ years in the Air Force. I have met a lot of great people over my 4 assignments that have helped me along the way to becoming an effective leader. The hardest part of the job is being away from family; however, the most enjoyable part of the job is getting to travel all over the country and world.

A great honor to serve
Network Administrator (Former Employee), South DakotaJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: great opportunity for learning, advancement, and technical application
Cons: very strict lifestyle.
Although my experience with the USAF was short lived, it was an amazing opportunity to serve my country as part of their cyber team.

Things could have gone better, yes, but serving in the USAF allowed me to learn about a technical aspect, safely, that I had not thought I could do before then. They paid for my technical schooling while I was in, and I'm able to continue that schooling now that I'm out.

Airman (E2) (Former Employee), McGuire AFB, NJJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: hour lunch break.
As i sat down at my computer I would be given a to do list. From helping members with their enlistment bonus. Or helping a member find out what they needed to do in order to achieve the next rank. Management did a great job in teaching me how to do different things.

The most fulfilling thing you'll never want to do
Lead Collection Operator (Former Employee), Fort Gordon, GAJanuary 27, 2015
I loved my time in the Air Force. Yes, there were times when it sucked. Deployments sucked. Early morning Physical Training sucked. But every day I went home with a great sense of who I was and what my purpose was. I was part of a group, part of a family. Things have never been the same as when I was in. Don't get me wrong, it pays terribly. But if you are an intelligent individual who is okay with needing to do some volunteer activities to succeed, then you'll be fine.

Very rewarding to support our dedicated men and women in uniform-Leading edge technology-Securing America's Interests
Adjunct Chief Technology Officer C3I&N PEO (Current Employee), Hanscom AFB, MAJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: mission oriented environment
Cons: large bureaucracy, non agile processes, antiquated policies not matched to current operational environments
I am at the tip of the spear in selecting,vetting and transitioning war winning capabilities and leading edge technologies that will provide an edge to our dedicated warfighters in their fight against terrorism and Cyber warfare.

I have learned to always open the aperture on the range of possibilities (environments, technology trade space and human capital) in my quest of possible solutions to a particular situation.

I believe in empowering and practicing open and genuine communication with my team members,suppliers and stake holders.

The most difficult part of my job is dealing with the cumbersome bureaucracy and antiquated policies that the DOD has in place governing the adoption/acquisition of cutting edge technologies.

The most enjoyable aspects of my job is being tasked with a vexing UON (Urgent Operational Need) that requires timely resolve where I engage my team and we discuss the art of the possible, engage known (and unknown resources) to find and deliver a solution.

Administrative Assistant/Office Manager (Former Employee), Multiple LocationsJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: comraderie, team environment and mentorship.
Cons: separation from family during deployments
Typical work day between three 10-hour overlapping shifts with daytime being the busiest. Constant training of new employees as part of career requires relocation of personnel. I developed great relationships with my co-workers. In turn I developed an advanced sense of cultural relations as we are from different parts of the United States and countries around the world. The hardest part of the job was deployments and relocating to new locations. I enjoyed being part of a moving part of a larger mission which was constantly changing.

Fast Paced Team Environment.
Aircraft Structural Maintenance Craftsman (Former Employee), Minot, NDJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: work on wide variety of airframes, and a wide range of people.
Cons: duty locations not always desireable.
A typical day started getting to work 15 minutes early, and reading about the previous shift work. This helped gain an understanding on what needed to be accomplished for the day. Managing people, and resources was instrumental to day to day operation of the shop, and required constant change as directions from higher up personnel.

I learned a great deal while serving in the Air Force, both personally and professionally. I learned how to lead and motivate people, as well as fine tuning my people skills to accomplish the task. This for sure, was the hardest part of the job, but at the same time the most enjoyable when a subordinate made a personal achievement.
