Pros

Great opportunity to make money for college. You will also make some of the best friends you will ever have. While pay is not great, the benefits are awesome.

Cons

Job security is not what it once was. With the wars coming to a close, the Army is facing some fairly stiff budget cuts, and subsequent downsizing. The Army is also examining changes to the retirement system. If you take a job in combat arms, don't expect to see your family as much, you will be in the field training a lot.

    Pros

    Basic allowances (room and board) free, Education Benefits during and after. New and different locations to over time. High level performance professionals to work and learn with.
    Working with cutting edge equipment if selected in certain technical areas.

    Cons

    Very structured, arrangements needed for family, personal life regulated and even more if living on post. Limited choices on living locations.

    Advice to Management

    Make people work their intended jobs. Help transitioning out soldiers to succeed, so it attracts and increases the quality and motivation of incoming soldiers.

    Pros

    Working in Army acquisition was one of the best career choices I ever made. Depending on the program you are working with, you have the opportunity to make an impact on Soldiers today and in the future.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any downside to Army acquisition. You have a clear path to transfer to the private sector, or stay with the Govt, when it is time to retire. Other than a difficult boss, which is true with any job, there is no downside.
