  • Sick Pay  (55 comments)

    “The British army will keep paying soldiers with long term issues that prevent them from doing their job far longer than it should.”

  • Death in Service  (17 comments)

    “Real possibility. I don't know what civilian employers are like but the army must be good at it?”

  • Pension Plan  (16 comments)

    “Good non contributory pension scheme. Half pension can be drawn after 20 years service for officers”

    All inclusive. Time off can become challenging, but it's frankly up to you to manage it. And you can take your dog to work.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Commissioned Officer in Andover, England

    It is unevenly distributed. Those that pursue army initiatives such as buying own home near place of work are then comparatively penalised by posting away from that area, being unable to draw the benefits of service housing, or the schooling allowance for children.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Aldershot, England

    Paid more for working overseas but home life can be affected due to the length of time you’re away

    Leave, dental, housing, education, pension.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Army Captain in Brecon, Wales

    The overall benefits package is very good but it is often conflated with that of civilian employers. This can be used to influence younger soldiers to stay without understanding their true motivations. This form of transactional leadership is lazy and could be improved.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Leuchars, Scotland

    All the perks are slowly being taken away. The new 2015 pension is ridiculous, not enough manpower for too many jobs.
