    Pros

    Serving as a Soldier is a great way to serve your country. The bonds of brotherhood formed will last a lifetime. Travel opportunities are great.

    Cons

    Deployments could mean a lengthy separations from family as well as possible hazardous and life changing/ending duty. Evaluations are subjective to ones relationship with ones rater and senior rater not based on specific metrics or parameters. A bad or neutral relationship with ones raters is a career killer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance the subjectiveness of the evaluation process by including measurable metrics. Incorporate the review of evaluations from subordinates and peers into the promotion process. Allow for a review of evaluation/promotion process that is transparent. Hold raters accountable so that they cannot rate 90% of the officers they rate as top 10% performers just for the purpose of giving everyone they rate that they like an outstanding evaluation.
