    Pros

    Excellent benefits package, growth potential, and schooling. There are several career fields you can go into from the beginning with the possibility of crossing over somewhere down the road if you find an opening. No where else will pay you to learn your new career and then give you the experience in that career to be successful down the road.

    Cons

    A lot of politics, and hurry up and wait games. Upper to mid management like to up the show time as the word gets passed down the line for any function that is going to take place. If the big boss want to see everone at 6am he puts that out in his meeting. then when it gets passed down each level 10-15 minutes gets taken off the front end of that time and by the time it gets to the lowest man in the chain he arrives at the function 30-45 minutes prior to anything going on. A lot of wasted time in the military in general but guess that's why everyone is a salary worker instead of hourly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better time management and communication flow up and DOWN the chain. See comment in the Cons section. Communication ust needs to be a lot better throughout the Army. And believe it or not but one of the worst units for communication flow is actually in a signal (communication) tyoe units. but every business has it pros and cons and all in all the military has far more pros than cons. at least it did for me.

    Pros

    Good pay, don't ever have to fight for your pay. Great team mindset. Time to get studying done during drill lol!

    Cons

    Reserve drills not planned out ahead of time. A lot of lecturing depending on who's in charge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan realisticly and ahead of time.
