Pros

- Outstanding pay and benefits - Opportunities limited only by individual motivation The discipline, drive, and commited work ethic that comes with service in the military are second to none. Even having worked for several years in a highly professional consulting firm, it is still easy to separate those who have served from those who have not based simply upon their overall job performance.

Cons

Inconsistent and sometimes toxic leadership make the process of transitioning from one unit to the next an oftentimes shaky affair. Greater effort is required from leadership to ensure the accuracy and fairness of the evaluations process to better identify leadership failures and remove them from service.

Advice to Management

Work to instill consistent and quality leadership from the lowest levels upward.

    Stop micromanaging everything, let your junior leaders make decisions, when you're done being a junior leader, stop trying to still be a junior leader!
