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

    Pros

    Great room for advancement if you're willing to perform.
    Vacation with pay.
    Job training.
    Great pay for young men and women starting out.
    Travel...
    Honestly to much to say.

    Cons

    Dealing with poor quality soldiers ruins unit cohesion.
    Long months/years away from home.
    As you're recruiter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the toxic leadership and boot the soldiers who are there just collecting a paycheck and not contributing to the overall mission.

    Former Employee - Human Resources Specialist

    I worked at US Army full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Medical benefits, steady salary, can meet some good people and travel.

    Cons

    Mental abuse for lower ranking individuals, speaking from the enlisted side of the house. And abuse of power. Too much power given to very flawed human beings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the abuse from the higher ranking enlisted to the lower ranking enlisted and maybe the suicide rates will go down.
