I have been working at US Army

Pros

The Army provides travel oppurtunities and experiences that simply cannot be realized by civilian employement, but that help produce a more well rounded employee.

Cons

The Army can be a calling, so think carefully before enlisting. Also for all of the benefits of serving, it can be a strenous duty.

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefts, good retirment

    Cons

    Far too much time away from home

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Soldiers spend enough time away from their families. Don't come up with unneccessary training that requires more time away from home.

    I worked at US Army

    Pros

    Best benefits you could ever hope for. Military life is as close to a functional socialist society as you'll ever see - Because service members' cooperation is compulsory. When camaraderie is strong, troops get hard work done with smiles on their faces. The old adage "Work hard, play hard" absolutely applies to military life.

    Cons

    Every once in a while, the wrong person is put in charge of a group of soldiers. This can cause a wide range of issues, from disgruntled troops to mass corruption. I have experienced exemplary leaders that took pride in their subordinates' careers as well as self-serving, miserable "leaders" who were just killing time until retirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage your younger troops to provide honest feedback. Take them seriously. There are some bad apples in your chain of command that ought to be addressed. Conversely, go out of your way to commend the worthwhile leaders. Everyone will benefit in the long run.
