What is the company culture like at United States Department of the Air Force? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Company Culture

Culture among employees is fantastic, culture among leadership is terrible

Challenging Work

Average days weren't too challenging, but challenging situations arose frequently

Suggestions for improvement

  • Upper level leadership needs to listen to mid-level leadership more, and mid-level leadership needs to listen to floor employees more.

What I like about the company

The camaraderie with other employees and the satisfaction of the job are better than any other I've encountered.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership is poor at communication and out of touch with the employees on the floor.
