The text is large. But it is easy to read, because he did not divide into parts, the essence is lost. I will not mention the authors either, because ... I will not, in general. At their request. This is the fruit of the collective labor of several people, but since not all who wrote have yet completed the return of the debt to the Motherland, their desire is completely understandable. So comments on this material, based on personal conversations, will follow, but somewhat later. (from the editors - R.S.)
This article presents an attempt to highlight the features of the service in the Scientific Companies of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, tested on a personal example. Unfortunately, we do not have complete information on all companies, however, we assume that it is unlikely that these unknown data will be very different from the available, in any case, in a positive way. The motive for writing this article was basically our desire to inform potential recruits who wish to enter the service in this unit about these features. Information from the media on this issue does not fully reflect what is happening.
We do not aim to "blacken" or "whitewash" this unit, but try to clarify, which will help the recruit to make a more adequate choice. During our admission to HP, we didn’t have this kind of information, and to some of us it would obviously have benefited.
Every human being is male in the Russian Federation, one way or another, over time, is concerned with the issue of military service on conscription. For many, the service ends with the passage of a commission at the military office and obtaining a military ticket, but most of the draftees are still sent to repay the debt to the Motherland.
Military conscription is in itself a rather controversial aspect of Russian life. In discussions about its feasibility, quite a few copies have already been broken. Recently, attempts of the leadership of the Ministry of Defense have been clearly traced, if not to eliminate the draft service, then at least to humanize it somewhat, which in our opinion is a very positive trend. Currently, in the army (in personal time) it is allowed to use mobile phones, a soldier receives a monetary allowance in the amount of 2000 rubles, a reduction in service life has significantly reduced the impact and changed the appearance of bullying - instead of beating, now increased physical exertion is practiced.
However, the queues before the military enlistment offices did not appear. A man who has just graduated from a university and who wants to work in his specialty, the army is perceived as an extremely annoying barrier. And this is fully justified, since leaving for a year in the Armed Forces is a great loss of the most valuable experience that must be gained in practice at the place of work, and gaining other “experience”, sometimes negative.
Very often, in the central media, a thesis was read about the need to fill the army with programmers. This was repeatedly voiced by the Minister of Defense at various conferences. In addition to programmers, the army needs civilian specialists of various profiles: doctors, motorists, chemists, radio electronics and many others.
Probably, in connection with this, the idea arose that it is possible to use the draftees more fruitfully for the benefit of the Motherland without detachment from their specialty, and later, after military service, also leave the officer’s position with the title. The idea is undoubtedly a beautiful one, but at this moment some questions already arise. For example, why not fill the places of operators of scientific companies with cadets of higher military educational institutions? Logically sound answers, in fact, two. There are not enough cadets, or the cadets are not sufficiently qualified. As an exotic option, you can consider the desire to "pour in fresh blood", providing a difference of views, due to training in different universities and a high "quality" level of operators, but this theory is divided into the contracting features described below. There are a lot of similar questions concerning not only the expediency of creating scientific companies, but also the possibility of ensuring their functioning on the current base available in the Armed Forces.
The order of departure to a scientific company is slightly different from that for the passage of military service. The differences are in the independent search for a suitable company, sending a resume with the required data, passing an interview and further maintaining communication with the officers responsible for recruiting operators. If these stages are completed successfully, the appropriate paper comes to the draft board and the future operator goes through all the standard procedures before sending the team from the collection point to the part where the selected company is stationed.
It is worth noting the following:
● The list of specialists required in scientific companies is somewhat broader than is usually given in official sources. Not only programmers and specialists in military or near-war machinery and equipment are in demand, but also in very many technical specialties: chemistry and chemical equipment, industrial automation, construction, automotive technology and many others. Many of the "techies" can try.
● information about the need for a mean score in 4.5 does not quite correspond to the truth: although a very large part has red diplomas, and the vast majority still have a score higher than 4.5, there were also cases of violation of the requirement, possibly due to different quality of diploma marks in different universities or others reasons. There is a competition for places, but so far, contrary to many statements, it seems to us, it is not so high.
● admission to the Scientific Company, distribution of summaries and other preparatory activities should be taken care of in advance. It should start after 2-3 a month before the call, that is, in July-August or January-February.
● before the final decision on the recruit service in HP, he is obliged to pass a medical commission at the recruiting station. Thus, there is a “dangerous moment”, so to speak, in which you are not yet sure that you have been accepted into a scientific company, but you have already got involved in a recruiting company.
● if you did not send out a resume and did not search for yourself a place for a scientific company, and the information reached you through the military registration and enlistment office, there is some probability that you will be deceived. At the level of rumors, there is information that some of the fighters were “lured” to recruiting centers supposedly to serve in a scientific company, but then they were sent to regular troops. Considering what was said in the previous paragraph, you should count on a certain, albeit small, probability that you will not be in HP.
After arriving at the company, the further life of the operator can be divided into two main parts: scientific activity and general military realities of internal service.
CONDITIONS OF LIVING AND SERVICE
Conditions of service in the armed forces may vary greatly from one part to another. Some parts are considered “statutory”, which implies the unquestioning implementation of the statute, which may include some of its inflexibility, but at the same time guaranteeing the absence of negative aspects of service associated with various kinds of arbitrariness. In some parts, according to the information of the serving comrades, the observance of the statute is less controlled and all kinds of liberties, both positive and negative, are possible there. All of the following applies to the scientific company VUNC VVS "VVA", which undoubtedly belongs to the category of authorized parts.
Upon arrival in the company from the assembly point, the so-called KMB (course of the young soldier) begins at the draftee. During the month set aside for this event, the soldier does not engage in scientific activities. Instead, under the strict supervision of the senior conscription, the junior appeal begins to learn the different elements of service in the Armed Forces. It must be said that this is a rather difficult period both for the senior conscription, which bears upon itself the training of replenishment, and for the replenishment itself, since the differences in lifestyle that have occurred over several days are striking, which by default causes some discomfort. Upon completion of the course of the young fighter, the “typical working week” begins, which includes four days of classes with a supervisor, one day of general military training and a “weekend”.
The differences between the service in the scientific company and the service in the “standard” parts of the armed forces are not as great as it may seem: the daily routine is strictly observed, the driving of vehicles is forbidden, some are allowed to leave only if there is a discharge note or diminishing leave with a vacation ticket, uniform etc. The striking difference is the team.
All personnel serving in the service have a higher education, with the majority it is fairly easy to find points of contact. About any cruelty or violation of the rules of the relationship (in a negative direction), in such circumstances, there can be no talk. This is not to say that everything in the relationship is absolutely smooth. People serve, and this itself guarantees the existence of conflicts, however, these conflicts do not go far.
Another difference is the improved living conditions of the soldiers, who in the scientific company are extremely comfortable against the background of the conditions of service in other parts. The operators live in rooms on the 4 person. On the 8 rooms there are typical utility rooms for the barracks: washstand, shower, dryer, leisure room, sports. a corner, a household room and other rooms laid according to the charter. Appearance, in general, resembles a hostel. There is hot water in the shower (almost always), in personal time and in some other cases it is allowed to wash. The overwhelming majority have no complaints about the living conditions, although there are cockroaches and other animals, sometimes they are noticed and destroyed by the forces of dress or other soldiers.
Under the permanent composition refers to military personnel undergoing military service under the contract. The company serves as 5 officers, a senior warrant officer for the positions of company head officers and 3 contract soldiers from among the junior command staff (sergeants). There are also 3 junior commander posts usually formally filled with senior conscript recruits who may be filled with contract servicemen in the future. Contract soldiers are typical military men. These people have almost no relation to science. They are engaged in the control of personnel, monitor the order and the observance of the daily routine. Conversation with these people, in most cases (and preferably), should be limited to standard phrases: “Yes, for sure!”, “No way!”, Various reports on the required form, etc. Everything else said can be used against you.
Each of the contractors has its own distinctive features, both positive and negative in relation to personnel. So, some of them may temporarily release or mitigate the observance of certain elements of the daily routine by soldiers: those who have changed their clothes and are tired after work or competitions; hard busy preparing for some exhibition, etc. Others are more demanding and the daily routine applies to everyone during the days when this contractor is responsible for the company, which means his early arrival and departure home after the end. Someone may occupy the free time of the soldiers with some of their own whims, not too relevant to the daily routine, for example, compulsory viewing News on the central aisle, if there is a TV in each room.
Since there was no special selection of the commanders of the company, such things as a slip mate, excessive familiarity with respect to the personnel, are mundane. Insults of operators, nevertheless, no, no physical actions - all the more, that very much pleases.
According to many operators, such a number of commanders in a company is excessive. During the day, most of them do not understand what they are doing, apart from distributing comments, searching for prohibited things, such as tea or cookies, and otherwise killing their work time and nerve cells of soldiers. In addition, part of the work of maintaining company documentation falls on the shoulders of the operators themselves. The company does not require strict internal control in view of the specific personnel, in contrast to the usual or cadet units, therefore, service in it, most likely, is easy for the contract.
During the service, a special side was observed, apparently of the military as a whole - the impossibility of passing by something strange, not necessarily non-statutory, and not making a remark. Very often, just moving between the corps, you can run into a bunch of unreasonable comments and even rudeness, simply because of the small title and position. No doubt, there are a lot of good people, but the percentage of "Gopnik", perhaps even more than in the civil service and the rank of such comrades are located in the whole range.
When fired, in reserve, from some people had to hear something like an excuse: "It was my job, I'm sorry, if something is wrong!". It is worth noting that the crap on the soldiers poured extremely selectively. If the contractor had no desire to conduct a lesson or it was too labor-intensive on his part, then, at times, classes were not held.
As already mentioned, the daily routine in the unit is not much different from the typical army. The differences lie only in the fact that instead of military disciplines, from Monday to Thursday, time is allotted for classes at the departments of the VUNC Air Force "VVA".
The daily routine includes morning exercises in the form of jogging from a kilometer to three, with preliminary warm-up exercises. In the evenings, mass sports events are held, in which servicemen are engaged in selected areas - some play football / volleyball, some play on bars and horizontal bars, some run around. It must be said that the conditions of summer classes are not the best - a large number of people are accumulating on the shells, since some of the sites were dismantled to build new buildings for the academy and nothing appeared in their place. Winter is better - classes are held in the universal sports complex, where there is a gym and new volleyball or football grounds.
One of the problems (common for the army) is nutrition. Meat for lunch is most often given in the form of tendons, a piece of fat, or something that is not clear, but not meat. Periodically, in the distributions can be observed cockroaches. The dishes, judging by the presence of food debris on spoons, also do not wash well. This is most likely a typical military problem, which they tried to solve by hiring third-party organizations to provide food.
To the delight of soldiers at the meal, control dishes are set, on which all food looks as it should. On the control dish there is meat and other joys. A couple of volunteers are photographed periodically with this dish for reporting, after which they eat regular food. The “hijacking” of the control dish is a rare but joyful event.
Friday is a combined day. Before lunch, on this day, classes are held by a regular company. In the majority - this is scribbling of various lectures, which in the end will not be needed. You can view various documentary or educational films. For example, about Stalin in the framework of the United Civil Party from one of the local Stalinists conducting classes. Or about Stalin. Well, or still about Stalin.
Practical activity is almost there. Departure for shooting is performed twice during the entire service life, grenade launching by training grenades is carried out once, and the practice ends there.
After lunch, an independent preparation is carried out at 14.00, involving the study of the theory written in the lectures. Lectures and other sitting on chairs are basically just a simple time killing, because are not particularly useful to future officers, and even more useless civilians. According to the mind, it would be necessary to somehow divide these categories and somehow organize it more productively, but so far everything is very sad. It could be even sadder, with endless tests for RCBZ and digging trenches, but the officers, for which thank you, have some humanity or laziness to conduct these classes.
Separately, it is worth mentioning the performance of duty in a daily attire. What is an outfit, you can find in the charter of the internal service. 4 pragmatic services (two for each floor of the barracks) and one on duty are serving in the company. The outfit consists entirely of operators of a scientific company. Partial stand on the pedestal, make cleaning three times a day, the premises of the company assigned to them and do everything else that is required by the statute. The attendants monitor the implementation of the daily routine in the company.
Often, the media have heard that the soldiers no longer clean the premises themselves, instead of them civilian personnel. It is not true. Partial wash floors, clean taps and toilets, vacuum places with carpet, etc. In addition, the cleaning is done by joint forces of the whole company during PCBs on Saturdays. The territory has not been assigned to the company (for the time being), therefore operators have been freed from cleaning snow, sweeping dust, painting grass and other things.
Service in a dress is one of the main sources of army fun, either on duty or on duty, can strain any of the regular company staff (officers and other contract soldiers), giving him varying degrees of difficulty and feasibility of quests from picking up a teapot and additional intensive cleaning to items from the category of “go and I don’t know where, bring it, I don’t know what. ”
Especially piquant moment are the various kinds of checks and visits of the higher commanders or, often, reporters. On such days, some tightening of the nuts occurs. Detailed location inspections are made for various restrictions. PCBs occur spontaneously, regardless of how much time has passed since the last restoring order and its expediency.
During this period, the poor permanent composition due to some incomprehensible fear of superiors. Since it’s bad, it’s bad and variable composition. Along especially.
During the arrival of film crews, whole decorations unfold in the company. It cannot be said that everything is a production, something is not far from reality, but the desire to embellish is obvious. Interviews look in the best traditions, everything is fine and nothing else. The people are moved, the goal is achieved. Sometimes we hear from relatives who are not related to the service, how much scientific companies are needed and how much they strengthen defense capability. Those who served in the army and are familiar with the army method usually find themselves closer to the truth in their assumptions.
Special mention deserves and drill. You have to walk a lot. Every Tuesday there is an academic divorce with passing by the tribune, from which the head of the academy or his deputy bring all kinds of information. This passage, as well as preparation for the oath, are incentives to drill classes. These exercises are quite exhausting, especially exhausting that there is essentially no sense in these actions. Moreover, the classes themselves are built quite illiterately in comparison with, for example, classes conducted in the commandant's office with violators of military discipline. And nevertheless, the drill is one of the most frequent placeholders of the Friday general day.
It is also worth noting the endless, repetitive, identical briefings on the topic of safety, life preservation, various prohibitions and other things held on numerous constructions taking place every day. In the case of special incidents or misdemeanors, a separate instruction can be given to the personnel, which can be long, stubborn and exhausting, in the form of a kind of punishment. They punish, as is customary in the army all for one, even in those cases where it can in no way be effective.
There is a lot of time for personal needs in a company. In the evening, the servicemen are given about an hour - one and a half hours after dinner, the time after the departure of those dismissed in the second half of Saturday and Sunday are also available. On weekends, regular layoffs to the city are possible. At the same time, no more than 1 / 3 personnel are sent to lay-off, according to the regulations. On Saturday, firing lasts from 16 to 21 hours, on Sunday from 10 to 21. Sometimes, about once every 2 of a month, there is an opportunity to go to the daily dismissal (for a special reason!), The so-called “vacation”, which lasts from 14 hours on Saturday to 20 hours on Sunday. Recently, vacation requires the arrival in the morning at the “mark” in the subdivision by 8 o'clock in the morning Sunday and stay in the subunit until the end of the Sunday divorce between the 10 and 11 hours.
Part of the free time is occupied by various form preparations, such as washing, hemming, etc. Sometimes, in personal time, especially at KMB, additional classes on teaching everyday things are held. Also, depending on the person in charge, it is possible to forcely view the Vesti program on the central aisle with all the staff and other equally interesting and useful events.
Storage media, phones, tablets, especially personal laptops are prohibited. Telephones, officially, are allowed to use in personal time. The ban concerns academy cadets and soldiers, including operators of scientific companies. This is very strange, since nothing can be explained. The permanent staff of the Academy uses godless American iPhones without any problems. But the soldier’s phone that remains at the pillow during the night causes wild boils, up to the deprivation of layoffs or attire on a day off, with the possible content of the device in the company commander’s safe and other amusements. Nevertheless, everyone has a phone, many have a tablet, which allows you to read a book or watch a movie in your free time.
It goes without saying that playing sports in your free time is welcome. It is possible to engage in a sports corner or on the street, on the court.
Periodically, on weekends, there are various inclusions of compulsory physical training, often without special security of the conditions of this event, or some unplanned cleaning in connection with the arrival of the general or some kind of check, which most likely will not come at all, but it is better to be safe. A particularly piquant moment is watching on Sunday films from Mikhail Zadornov about the emergence of Slavs or another heresy in the old club on a CRT TV from a long distance.
It is not known how these events can be included in the plan.
Quite rarely, but going to the Philharmonic, local history museum, cinema or circus. According to previous appeals, earlier this happened more often, at the same time, officers, apparently, were bored and attempts to organize an excursion to the airfield to look at aircraft, at least once during their service, had success only after a very long making. " Everything is military. Taking the initiative in this regard is recommended.
Quite a large part of the personnel involved in the so-called "social work" of varying degrees of cheerfulness or despondency, which can take quite a large part of your personal time and to some extent "poison" your existence.
It includes a variety of chores (electrics, plumbing, photoshop!, Etc.), participation in various music and dance events, KVNs, work with wall printing, and so on. Some people like this social work, some don’t really agree that it is customary to designate an artist as a loader in the artist’s army, and sometimes as a painter as a loader as an artist, which causes an additional strong lower lumbar pain for some soldiers. Usually there are volunteers in the positions, however, if there are no volunteers, they will be appointed volunteers, so it makes sense to “cover up” your comrades, if you have some highly developed required skill. In addition, some benefit can be derived from this load, most likely insignificant, but sometimes pleasant.
Scientific activity, according to the order of the Minister of Defense No. XXUMX, is the main occupation of military personnel of scientific companies. Military training classes have been removed from the daily routine, and “scientific activity” has been added instead. In total, this case is given about 404 hours per day from Monday to Thursday. It turns out, about 6 hours per week. Outfits, jogging, thousands of different constructions have not been removed from the daily routine, which, in addition, reduces the already modest amount of time to work.
The result is, on average, less than 20 hours per week. Thus, cumulatively doing scientific work is equivalent to about 5 months to a typical 40 hourly working week, which you will agree a bit, given that you may spend some time on drawing up some kind of accompanying documents, writing numerous reports and walking on instances for signatures and other bureaucracy.
Operators are engaged in various areas under the guidance of senior officers and senior officers in rare cases, civilian personnel, usually colonels or lieutenant colonels, as assistant professors and professors of the Academy departments or scientific research centers located in the Academy. The supervisor sets the tasks and checks their implementation. Sometimes, tasks are completely unrelated to scientific activities.
For example, one of his colleagues learned how to cut with a grinder, paint, assemble furniture, wash carpeting, when it seemed to the scientific leader that it was time to put things in order at the department too. Even more frequent occurrences are additional “paper” tasks related to working with documents, arranging posters and other non-operator-related activities that are put by other officers in the departments, as well as occasionally company officers, at the request of outside officers. This is the exception rather than the rule, but it can happen to anyone.
There is almost no teamwork. One supervisor may be subordinate to up to three operators who may be engaged in completely different things. This is a particularly sad moment. Nowadays it is very difficult to do anything useful alone. Having trained people to develop, it would be much more appropriate to combine them to solve one problem. At the same time, sometimes there is continuity between the activities of operators of scientific companies of various appeals, which is a positive thing, although sometimes it leads to a complete inability to deal with all the previous operator and redo everything anew.
Using the Internet, as well as communications, is prohibited on the territory of the Academy. There are also many restrictions on secrecy, such as the use of unregistered media. Everyone understands that without the Internet, things will go very badly, and various options appear, for which officers are periodically dismissed from the armed forces and, one hears, sometimes imprisoned. In the event that a soldier falls on it, he will be sent to serve in the usual part, and the authorities will receive a penalty. This is one of the clearest examples of military logic in the provision of scientific activity.
The effectiveness of scientific activity is determined by the number of articles, rational proposals, participation in conferences, registrations of software products. The company command is constantly reminded of the increase in performance. The problem is that for the most part, these indicators in no way reflect the actual level of work and results. Articles are published in various "junk" collections, there are very few WAKs.
When collecting statistics of operators, a good VAK article of large volume can be equated to the same one, which is equated with a “junk” volume in the 1 page. Such a performance proposal will be added to the portfolio and go to the report on the work performed. Software products, sometimes, are one formula, programmed somewhere in Matlab, with a screwed GUI, which still does not work. This software is absolutely equivalent to reporting serious software that you developed during the year. The above is an additional factor in the motivation of operators for high-quality scientific work.
Periodically, soldiers go to various conferences. These include the 2015 Army, the Ministry of Defense Innovation Day, and others. Developments are presented to high individuals, up to the Minister of Defense. The preparation was grueling, as it seemed, longer than the development itself. In the event that a soldier was selected for one of such important events, he was expected to have thousands of rehearsals of reports, writing heaps of papers, preparing stands. About some reports can be read in the mainstream media. The scale of development is visible to the prepared specialist in two lines of publication. In the end, everything runs smoothly and everyone is generally satisfied.
All this, most likely, problems of the academy as a whole. It is very difficult to engage in scientific activities in military conditions, and this applies not only to soldiers, but also to teachers. In our opinion, it is almost impossible. As practice shows, weapons development is carried out in civilian enterprises. In the academy, users of these weapons are being prepared and science is likely to be stuck here insofar as the academy is, after all. Most soldiers are engaged in solving engineering problems.
Distribution in faculties and departments is a very strange way. A specialist in lasers may well be engaged in programming, and a motorist can sculpt electronic textbooks for cadets. Obviously, the approach is extremely irrational. This suggests that there are no conditions for the application of soldiers' knowledge and the purpose of their content is clear only to someone from the high command.
CONTINUATION OF CONTRACT SERVICE
One of the “bonuses” of the service in a scientific company (the most significant), as they say in the media, is the possibility of concluding a contract with the Ministry of Defense and serving as junior research assistants. In the first call, the contract was signed by half of the operators, in the second - a little less. In the third - one third. In the fourth - 5 people from 29. In the last two appeals, the posts that were made available for distribution did not include junior research assistants.
They came mainly to places in the usual parts of the Air Force, among which for the last draft there was not a single post in Voronezh. Those who were lucky enough to remain in the positions of scientific workers, from senior appeals, mentioned that their scientific activity was over, and the work now consists of work orders, heaps of papers and other military and bureaucracy. Some were satisfied with their places. These guys went to serve consciously and their presence in the scientific work, or rather its absence, does not care.
Obtaining operators of scientific titles by operators after graduating from a civilian university and undergoing military service for one year in quite comfortable conditions sometimes rages wildly among some cadets, and sometimes officers in relation to current and former (now officers) operators. The cadets themselves, to put it mildly, do not, to put it mildly, shine with their level of education and knowledge, which, however, is rather the general tendency of education in the Russian Federation at the current moment. However, there are literate and reasonable copies, but extremely rarely. Particularly noteworthy is the participation of cadets in research work. One operator of a scientific company is able to make happy the inclusion of a couple of students in each of their articles / programs / rational proposals that they have never seen before. However, various officers include there in the same way.
Before being transferred to the reserve, measures were taken to agitate the operators to enter the academy as civilian personnel. Conditions promised, for many, quite juicy. The meeting was held by the Deputy Head of the Academy in a beautiful office. As it turned out later from civilian personnel, they didn’t see what they promised. Apparently, there is a personnel shortage in the academy and an attempt is made to fill it somehow.
As in the rest of the army, there is some problem in a scientific company with the untimely (or absent) extradition of some necessary for the soldier and the items assigned to him. This applies mainly to the elements of uniforms, ranging from chevrons, shoulder straps, and other trifles, ending with relatively expensive hats and shoes. Critical items are often issued with a big delay, small things are purchased at their own expense, sometimes strikingly sensitive to contentment in 2000 p.
The main items of equipment (field clothing, berets, duffel bags and part of their contents) are provided at the collection points, and not at the academy, so often the clothes are not suitable in size or of inadequate quality. Some of the operators acquired more appropriate form elements at their own expense, while some fundamentally did not buy almost anything. As a result, when an inspection occurred on the horizon, the missing or inappropriate appeared by the forces of the company foreman.
Repair of various household equipment (water supply taps and so on) and some consumables (light bulbs) scientific company provides a mysterious organization "Slav", or rather mostly does not provide. Not done, of course, falls on the shoulders of the operators of the company, which occasionally can even help the officers.
The apotheosis of charges for the needs of the company was the so-called “dembelsky chord”, when the command wanted to get a glass cabinet from the operators for storing company awards. They all left, wiped off, but the sediment remained.
AS A CONCLUSION
Above, the team of authors tried to provide, as much as possible with unbiased and simple facts, information about the service in the scientific company VUNC VVS "VVA". It is clear that this is quite difficult to do, and it would be more possible only after a certain amount of time after the service. On the other hand, many negative points would be simply forgotten. It is human nature to forgive and forget the bad.
We believe that serving in a scientific company is the best option to spend a year in the army. It is, of course, easier to service in the usual part. However, illusions about the service in the parts in the air does not soar. A scientific company is a subdivision often mentioned in the media, and there are often common myths that have no relation to reality.
The year was spent with the sensation of some kind of theatrical performance like, for example, in a circus. People are kicking, saying memorized phrases, doing the same thing to no one, it is not clear why. Here you can recall the military tradition. But in the past years, the soldiers were let through the line and were beaten with sticks — also a kind of tradition.
Sorry about the loss of the year, of course, not worth it. New acquaintances, an outing from the comfort zone, strengthening the moral and physical condition - there are profits from the service. On the other hand, these utilities, in our opinion, do not override the negative aspects that have to face. First of all, with a significant discrepancy between the wrapper and the filling. Although there are people who are satisfied with everything. How many people, so many opinions.
