The Army is a unique leadership challenge provides life lessons that NO other career may provide.

O3 - Army - Captain (Former Employee) Tacoma, WA

ProsLeadership, life lessons, confidence, personal development, ethical reasoning, work satisfaction, cultural awareness, medical competency, pay is good (for officers; enlisted eventually can be good), benefits, schooling/education, opportunities to learn languages, travel, and experience the world; opportunity to gain valuable skills that may transfer to the civilian world.

ConsMedical is free and not all that great when it counts (because it is designed to not cater to everyone else trying to get out of work or get more than they deserve); There will be stressful and potentially life threatening situations, can be difficult on family/relationships, you can't get fired (unless you really screw up) but at the same time you can't quit - contracts aren't for everyone, in the end you do what you are told.

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior officers are more experienced than I, so I will not judge harshly... all I would say is that keeping the politics out of Soldiers' day-to-day life is beneficial for all units regardless of size.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
