I worked at US Army full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The Army has a very competitive salary, and educational benefits. The Army pays for all training and supplies all necessary equipment to perform all assigned tasks.

Cons

The Army has long work hours depending on your individual job or specialty. Also you may be required to leave you family for long extended periods of time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The only advise I can give to management is to listen to your subordinates suggestions and ideas. They are the ones that actually do the job and have first hand knowledge on how to make things better.

    I have been working at US Army full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, overall good experience. Ability to see the efficient impacts of your decision making. Good benefits after separation. Fast-paced at times which tests work ethic and commitment.

    Cons

    Well, if you don't like sleeping and training outside every now and then, and deploying to the middle east every other year you may not enjoy it. But it comes with the territory. Besides, deployments should subside considerably in the next couple years. Some people can be difficult to work with, but I'm sure that's the case everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership needs to recognize that they need to see their job partially as a public servant and realize their actions and decisions have considerable impacts on the lives of their Soldiers and their families. While flexibility is an important facet of serving in the military, training exercises should be scheduled and locked in advance to limit impact on Soldiers' personal lives.
