I worked at US Army full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
I served in the Army for a little over four years, having joined and ROTC in college and serving after graduation. I was commissioned as an Infantry officer, so I can speak only about my time in that role. Overall, my time was amazing. The training is world class for an Infantry officer, from officer basic to Ranger School through Airborne, the training does not stop. Leadership development is superb, my ROTC program alone molded me to be an effective communicator and leader.
You are surrounded with amazing individuals from all walks of life and learn so much from all of them.
As an infantry officer you are able to take command of a platoon, after only a year out of college. Being in charge of that many people, up to 40, at such a young age is an unbelievable experience and grows your professional capacity immensely. I could go on and on about being a platoon leader, and officer, an XO and various other positions, but bottom line: this job is the hardest and most rewarding thing you'll do out of college hands down.Cons
I left after four years, which was always my plan. However, the downside of being in the Army is being a large bureaucratic institution with tons and tons of processes that can seem outdated. There are also some bad leaders and complacency that you'll encounter. But these cons pale when compared to the pros.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be forward thinking. Empower young soldier and officers to be creative. How's thing we're done in the past don't always need to be how things will be done in the future. ROTC is an incredible program, keep finding it!RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
