Outdated Management

Although the Department of Defence has the benefits of providing excellent work/life balance opportunities and a stable career, management styles are still very outdated, producing a high staff turnover. There seems to be no differentiation between normal daily outine and when soldiering is required, making it hard to find a centered work style and routine.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

Lack of management training.
