I have been in IT for long time, however, I got my TS last year for my work in military. I am in reserves, and currently work as a senior BA/Scrum Master role for a product company. Pay is good and handsome, but I feel I am not contributing enough to the nation.
I was evaluating Defense Contracting. I am not sure if it will be a good or bad move. I have friends who worked there and this is what they say
1. The jobs are flaky, technology is old, and not secure. Now what is secure in IT?
2. You will not learn much, from where you at, so try to grow inside your organisation.
My current employer don't understand anything about how reserves work, and I always get an eye for taking FTO plus annual training plus any other school. I might go for deployment next year or I might go to reclass school . My employer , says nothing but is not supportive of it.
In that scenario, I been talking to switch jobs.
Any advice?
