    I have been working at Air Force Reserve full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Serve my country, travel, and make some the best friends in the world.

    Cons

    Serving 26 years is a long time. I would like to use my skill set somewhere in the civilian world. GE seems like a great place to start my next chapter in life.

    I have been working at Air Force Reserve part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pride in what you do. Job stability. Consistent pay increases. You will get plenty of training. The opportunity to travel around the world and be paid to do it. The longer you stay the better it gets. Retirement! Discounts at civilian businesses. If you are a Reservist (vs. active duty) they can't just tell you that you have to move to another state or country. So you can buy a house and settle down without worrying about having to move. With Reserves you kinda get the best of both worlds - you get to be a civilian most of the time and then you do your military commitment on the side....however, even as a "civilian" you are still bound to the rules of the military (no drug use). Usually there are opportunities for full-time positions at whatever base you are assigned to. You would have to live close enough to the base though to justify a daily commute. Education benefits are very good! I was active duty for 8 years, got out for awhile then went back in as a Reservist.

    Cons

    You may have to deploy for long periods of time to very hot places. The pay isn't that great when you are just starting out. You are on an enlistment so you can't just quit. You MUST stay off drugs and not get any DUI's and stay in shape (more of a pro). You have to get use to the rank structure and doing what you're told even if you don't like it. As a reservist (vs. active duty) you will have to wait till age 60 to collect retirement. Reservists dont get nearly as much points towards retirement as active duty does.
