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

Pros

benefits, people mostly and challenges. It has been great most of the time, but unfortunately it's time to go. The moves can be great, but sometimes your wishes do not coincide with the Army. Overall it has been good 20 years.

Cons

Sometimes people, mostly deployments and LONG hours. % deployments in 20 ears is a bit much for a family. Being blown up and spending 8 months in hospital on-off is also hard. The moves can be very hard, especially if army do not agree with you.

Advice to Management

Listen to subject matter experts, stop being power happy and be a bit more compassionate.

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

    Pros

    Real life experience; leadership training; duty, honor, country.

    Cons

    Long hours, poor immediate supervisors (LTCs and COLs), boss expects me to read his mind then gets pissed when I don't.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a lot more time mentoring and counseling with your subordinates; give more feedback and guidance; do not micro-manage; respect me for my rank as I respect your rank.
