The positives almost equal out the negatives

Chemical Operations Specialist (Former Employee)
Fort Leonard Wood, MO

ProsI felt the best reasons to be in the US Army were College Money, Opportunities to Travel, and Experiences working in Groups. I successfully used all of my allotted college money already. When I was still in the Army I was stationed in Germany. This provided me a great opportunity to visit many different countries which was a great learning experience. I definitely think I learned more traveling than I would have if I had taken the traditional route through college. Lastly the Army provided a unique environment to work with people from different place and backgrounds.

ConsGetting Exploited by the Government, Constant Lies from Management, Anti-Intellectual Environment,

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit Drinking the Kool-Aid

    I have been working at US Army


    Pros: Officers are given lots of responsibility; even right out of college you will be in charge of at least 15-30 people who count on you… Cons: It might cost your life.
