    Pros

    Knowing you will be paid on the 15th and the 1st of every month. Pay increase, able to move up in ranks easier than any other military services. Lots of off days on Federal Holidays. Able to educate yourself in different trade schools and colleges.

    Cons

    Some "management" only cares for themselves. Deployments that are longer than any other military service (1 year to 15 months). Dealing with "some" management that doesn't even know their own job. As you gain rank you deal with lower enlisted that can't deal with their own personal problems and you have to get involved. Mass punishment for something that only one person has done IE soldier has a DUI over the weekend and your whole unit is called in during the weekend for accountability.

    Advice to Management

    My Advice to Management is to remember that the lower enlisted look up to you. You are the teacher. Watch carefully at your soldiers and see their faults and correct them and teach them better habits. Don't worry about what your doing the next weekend or why you need to stay longer than another unit. Remember, the soldiers will deploy and you need to teach them ways to survive when the "crap" hits the fan. Don't wait til its to late.
