The Air Force is full of quality people, and it is an honor to serve U.S. Airmen as they perform their missions. Work hours can be reasonable or unreasonable, depending upon where you work. Each particular job has it's own challenges. The culture is very good overall, and it is very inclusive of all types of people.
Chief Information Officer/chief Technology Officer (Former Employee) - Falls Church, VA - April 9, 2020
Typical work day is 7:30 am to 4:30 pm. Over the course of 24 years, I have become a subject matter expert at Healthcare Administration. The Air Force Medical Service leadership is impressive. The hardest part was moving regularly and being a self starter. The most enjoyable was my opportunity to mentor countless others.

Job security is high. This is a positive. The negative is that toxic supervisors remain longer than they should. Since it is a headquarters job, there are areas that greatly add to the organization as a whole. There are also areas that add very little to the Air Force as a whole that would be better being combined with the other Services (Army and Navy).
Senior Global Logistics Manager (Current Employee) - Langley, VA - December 30, 2019
A typical day can provide positive stress because so many agencies require my expertise. This line of work gives me a sense of ownership with projects assigned to me. It sharpens my multitasking capabilities by teaching me to continue to prioritize situations and follow up. I am always willing to bounce ideas off of my co-workers and they are always willing to provide feedback. The hardest part about my job is the lack of technology or funding. I manage multiple teams geographically separated and they often need my expertise at their location. The most enjoyable aspect of my job is helping my teams with their issues, and traveling.
Time flies, team trust, work with a diverse group of people, and I love coming to work every day.

The environment overall is great, we have challenges at times though there is always solutions and I believe there is more better changes ahead of us. The culture is diverse and I have learned a lot you just have to incorporate what you learn in different areas but there is career development.

Loved what I did for the Air Force, it's the people you work for that makes or break you! Serving you mankind is fulfilling and a blessing within itself. Having a jerk for a supervisor is a hard knocks life!

Joining the U.S. Air Force as a public affairs specialist is a challenging task. Not only do you have to learn the job quickly, but it is also a very public role and comes with a lot of inside competition. The company is already well established within society so it is your job to ensure that we are in the public eye positively. Unfortunately, not all who join the Air Force want to see you succeed, and there will be a challenging time due to poor leadership and misunderstanding of your job description. All in all, it's a great place to work.
