    Former Employee - Military Non-Commissioned Officer in Fort Bragg, NC

    I worked at US Army as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    Unparalleled work experience.
    Military officers have a great reputation with civilian companies that makes it easier gain employment if you decide to get out of the military.
    Located around the word and endless opportunities to be in some great location. Maybe some bad ones too.
    Pay is better than most college graduates and gets better over time.
    This position will give you great opportunities for responsibilities and to go as far as you desire.
    An officer will gain great understanding of all aspects of business from engineering, planning, human resources, operations and more.
    Education benefits are potentially limitless.
    Excellent healthcare for the officer and his family. Camaraderie amongst peers, superiors and subordinates can turn into life long friends and memories.

    Cons

    May require extensive travel or deployment into hazardous conditions for long periods of time. If you consider that a "Con."
    Potential or danger and loss of life.
    Difficult on families.
    Consistently changing work environment, positions and military policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for the opportunity to live the Army values.
