I worked at US Army full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great team building skills and the opportunity to travel, get a tuition free education, and develop organizational and leadership skills.

Cons

Deploy to hostile environments. When a soldier leaves the Army, society does not look out for veterans like they should. Therefore, it can be difficult to find employment and transition back into society.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the mission that you have I would not change anything. However, ACAP should focus soley on helping the soldier understand interviewing and resume help. The civilian sector does not try and put veterans on the right track.

    I have been working at US Army

    Pros

    It's an opportunity to be apart of something bigger. You will see a lot of travel. There are options for education, student loan repayment, free housing and food.

    Cons

    Being in the Army can be painful at times. Simple things take forever to get done and you will work for and with people with little or no values regularly. To clarify that statement, the Army is big on values but not so big on enforcing said values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate you war time recruits. Many Seniors who came in under multiple waivers for various things are now leaders who do no portray the Army in a positive light. Thin the herd at the top and recruit more selectively to fill from the bottom.
