    I worked at US Army full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Army is full of hard working people many of them determined to be a success in life. Lots of opportunities for learning and advancement (though they don't come with increase in pay). Free medical and automatic pay raises are a plus. There is a lot of BS to put up with but the intangible rewards of pride, duty, and service can make up for a lot of that.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy is unwieldy and very difficult to navigate. This means promotions are rarely merit based. Many people may be above you in rank (and therefore pay) but you will do more work or have more responsibility. Work life balance is dependent on command climate (some suck some are awesome). Little regard is given to personal preference for assignments. Some bad elements and people can take up a HUGE portion of your time.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the outdated HR system. Focus more on ability based promotions (not time in grade). Realize that the HT/WT system is not accurate and is being ignored by all E7 and above while being used to force out some quality junior enlisted.
