I worked at Royal Air Force full-time
Spent 6 years in the RAF - Helped me grow up and kick on in the commercial world with a great grounding in IT.
Moving around a lot, no real control over career path - All stuff you know when you sign on the line, but everyone has their point where it's time for something new.
Advice to Management
Modernise a little, the military, as with wider society, is evolving - you'll attract a better talent pool but looking forward rather than holding onto the past.
