    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The friends and connections you make will last a lifetime.

    Cons

    There are to many to list, all I can say is be flexible and ready to be told everything that you do not want to hear.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the good ole boys club and actually take care of everyone like we are taught in our leadership schools.

    Pros

    There isn't any. I would not work here again. Very poor for a professional to have to down play his work so lesser people don't get their feelings hurt .

    Cons

    Everything. The work environment is horrible. People don't care about anything. The healthcare is horrible and no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better quality people.

    Pros

    Benefits, teamwork, weekends off, holidays off. If you deploy, that's where you make your money. But of course, more dangerous.

    Cons

    You will wait for hours at a time for nothing. That's where you will waste your life in the army, waiting. If you have appointments or someone in your family has one, you can't leave because waiting around doing nothing is more important than anything else. Everyone gets treated like children. If you want to go back to elementary school, this is for you. Never getting the job done early. Always waiting till the last 30 minutes of going home that they decide to work and now you end up staying a couple of hours more to complete it.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat everyone with respect. Act professional and lead by example. Ask and listen to your soldiers questions. Utilize time better to get the job done early rather than later and last minute, like always.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and unbeatable. Your healthcare, dental and vision are all paid for no matter what. Job related or from on your own time.

    Cons

    The leadership and command are very unprofessional in my expierence. Their is an aweful lot of disrespect from leadership. Leadership does little to no work and also complains when things arent done right even though they just stood there and watched.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees time away from work. Stop forcing them to work 24/7. Soldiers/employees need down time and not constanct work calls.
