    Current Employee - O2 - Army - First Lieutenant in Washington, DC

    I have been working at US Army full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Network, Experience, Respect, Travel opportunities. There are many things I like about the Army, which is why I've stuck with it. I was an NCO but decided to get my commission a few years back. Both tracks had their strong points.

    Cons

    Because there are so many people in the Army, things are run by specific regulations. It works for most situations, but it sometimes screws people over. They have systems in place to catch these things, but they don't always work.
