Why to join Indian Air Force

Being in a high risk job with a security force like the IAF obviously implies that the perks and allowances are huge as well. Apart from attractive pay packages and a life pension equivalent to 50% of the income, there are also other incentives as well. Free accommodation and education for your family, as well as travel and leave concessions as well as a lot of other benefits make a career with the air forces quite a lucrative opportunity. On top of that, the glory of a job well done is unmatched, be it through self realization or with recognition and honors being bestowed unto you. Being party to a number of adventure sports Being among the ranks in the Indian Air Forces necessarily requires you to be adept at a number of adventurous sports that will send some serious adrenaline rushing in through your body. The thrill of sports like paragliding, sky diving, car rally, rafting and the like are some worthy perks you will enjoy if you choose to be a part of the hugely dynamic air force wing of the Indian armed forces. The style factor Like any other job in uniform, the Indian Air Force also endows you with a unique style appeal, though in a heightened dimension. The pride that overtakes your very being every time you put on the dignified uniform with a promise to protect your motherland is a priceless feeling that only a lucky few in the world can afford to experience. Apart from that, years of rigorous training and a dedicated regimen ensures that you would be one of the most disciplined persons around, irresistible and irreplaceable! A uniquely dedicated -

As an airmen you can not become specialist. Multitasking will spoil your career. performance appraisal not shown immediately after it is done.

my trade as photo fitter could not build my career as I was holding same rank for 13 years. it was too frustrating for me. my juniors got promoted I was in frustration. there was no job satisfaction. although I tried to adjust within organization with other skills like Designing, IT, training and development task I was not given importance. My talent got no value.

Pros

Very good facilities like medical, security inside camps for family, welfare for staff, other benefits....

Cons

leave restriction, no work-life balance, humiliation at work, worker is not comfortable becouse he can not approach management, management does not want care for feelings and emotions of workers
