    I worked at Deutsche Bundeswehr full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Secure position, good educational opportunities, possibilities to travel internationally (US, European Union)

    Cons

    Planning can be complicated, especially in the first 2 years (if you enlist for 8+ years) as even fixed schedules are subject to change (sometimes on last minute - Friday to arrive on Monday at the other end of Germany instead of 8 weeks later).

    Pros

    Outstanding work environment; the leadership of the school truly cares about providing a quality education to German staff officers.

    Cons

    Positions at the school are all government-related, so they are not open to the general public.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Deutsche Bundeswehr full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good tough training! You get to work with professionals at every level.

    Cons

    Sometimes you spend a lot of time sitting around doing nothing or just cleaning your equipment after a few days in the woods. Lack of money for training and ammunition!! Often had no ammo to go shooting because there was no money. That is simply ridiculous considering that paratroopers should be an elite unit. Also if you don't stay long enough you will miss you on certain training opportunities because again the Bundeswehr does not want to spend money for you.

    I have been working at Deutsche Bundeswehr full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You get challenged to explore your limits and discover things about yourself. The training is thorough and is not only sharpening your skills but also developing your character.

    Cons

    Huge organisation with enormous bureaucratic processes. HRM is virtually non existant. Performance is not rewarded and the frequency of changes of station are too high.
