    The best decision I ever made was to serve in the Army right out of college!"

    I have been working at US Army full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    First, you are not going to find a better paying job right out of school. Secondly, you are not going to get the same amount of experience in the civilian world. Lastly, you become a veteran and have all the benefits associated with that title.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work long hours and at times, in a hostile zone. Get ready to get over yourself. The Army is a team and you will either thrive as a team player or die as an individual. Lastly, get in shape and stay in shape--your body and mind are equally tested.
