    Is this too formal?

    Hey,teachers.

    What do you think about the phrase "in service of (employer X)"

    Does this have a military connotation or a too formal tone?

    Example: "She can take maternity leave while in service of Technology Solutions"

    Looking forward to your valuable insight,
    Not a teacher here. Just an English buff.

    "In service at" would be acceptable but I would prefer "working at" or "under employment at".
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.
