    I have been working at US Army

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. You earn 30 days of leave each year as well as plenty of 3 and 4 day weekends when not in the full training calendar.

    Cons

    Lots of late hours and sometimes weekends during training events. The Army is what you make of it, but it is a Government job so there will always be decisions made above you that you will question but not have any control over.

    It's what you can get out of it and make of it.

    I worked at US Army full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited potential for growth and promotions even starting off as an enlisted member. Educational opportunities may be a long term commitment but are paid for if you have the sincere commitment to set aside your time. Pay starts of low but steadily increases as you advance and for time served. Pay is based on grade and time in service, not the job you perform or how long and hard you work. So ensure you choose a job you will enjoy so your not like many young Soldiers who later complain about the next guy getting over. Additional pay allowances for housing and food if your married and live off post.

    Cons

    Day to day job activities are not as prestigious as most would imagine, but hard work will eventually be rewarded. Single soldiers having to live in barracks with more strict living standards than married couples off post. It's becoming a cover your A$$ type of daily work routine. Make the pay fair for single soldiers as well as married ones. Housing and food allowances are promoting a trend of too many young soldiers (18-21) getting married for the wrong reasons for this extra pay and to move off post. The average of college students within the same age and living in dorms aren't following this routine because they don't have the same incentive offered by the Army.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the Army times and you will learn that more and more senior leaders don't hold the same values they enforce. Senior leaders don't get punished the same way the average soldier does either.
