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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits for you and your family. These benefits include 100% medical and dental. Scholarship called Post 9-11 GI Bill allows you to go to school for 36 months and includes stipends and housing allowance among other things.

    Cons

    It's a 24-7 job. Sometimes power-hungry leaders exercise their "leadership" a little too far. High expectations from civilians often leads to every minute detail of your life to be regulated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support your Soldiers while you clean out ineffective leadership. Benefits need to remain intact as the force draws down.

    I have been working at US Army as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    long story short "great benefits, stable pay".
    If you are stating out and have no clue on what to do, its a great place to begin, you might end up making a career out of it and retiring. You get tuition assistance and learn new skills to add on your resume.

    Cons

    you don't have a set schedule. If you are told to stay until 8pm, you have to do it and don't get paid overtime.
