    Former Employee - Airborne Infantry Squad Leader in Vicenza (Italy)

    I worked at US Army full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    A whole world of experience literally in the palm of your hand. You will have access to an unbelievable amount of resources, talent, and opportunity. Depending on you, your choices and work ethic, you have the chance to see and do things you only read about or watched in a movie.

    Cons

    If you are not of sound mental strength, dont join, or AT LEAST stay out of the infantry. There is a reason Ranger school says "not for the weak or faint hearted."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO YOUR FIRST LINE SUPERVISORS OFFICERS!!!!!!! Lieutenants fresh out of ROTC, check it out, YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING. If you are not best friends with your NCO's you are either an idiot or you are in an clown shoes unit.

    Advice to senior, i mean SENIOR, management.... CUT THE CONTRACTING!!!!! Its ruining your budget and screwing your mission.
