Pros: career advancement, great benefits, travel
A typical day at work consisted of physical training to maintain a healthy body, team meetings and collaborations about how to contribute to the mission, executing individual activities according to priority, and opportunities to work with senior leadership.
While in the Air Force, I learned how to grow from a high school graduate into a professional member of the workforce. This organization taught me how to be a subordinate, a leader, and a team player.
Management was composed of Airmen who had started from the bottom of the organization and worked their way into their senior positions. They served as supervisors, leadership, and most importantly mentors.
The Air Force develops people into Airmen. Everyone went through the same basic training and had the same core values instilled in them. What I liked most was that we all exercised "Integrity First" into everything we did as Airmen.
The hardest part of the job was having to say goodbye to each team of people that I worked with. The Air Force offers a lot of travel and a lot of great people to meet. Saying goodbye to them can be tough but it is worth for the opportunities that are in store.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the learning experiences. You are always in training for something in the Air Force, which means that you are also always in a state of learning new things.
