    Pros

    Very cohesive organization and members collaborate together in harmony.

    Cons

    Some bureaucratic processes can slow down production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push counseling as key to overall success and promotion. Counseling is the best tool that the US Army has to continue to grow and prosper.

    I worked at US Army full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Create a family-type bond that lasts a lifetime. 30 days of paid "vacation" every year. At the lower levels you really only need to show up at the right place, at the right time, and in the right uniform - if you do that and only that, you are succeeding. If you stay out of trouble, and spend a little off-time studying, then getting promoted is relatively quick and easy.

    Cons

    Most units I was a part of, a 12 hour work day was considered a short day. If you're married, go ahead and start looking for a new wife or girlfriend or be prepared to be single. The senior leadership is MUCH more concerned about their own appearance to higher ups, and how much paper work they can get done instead of worrying about the soldiers and/or training. I had a battle buddy get yelled at for training his soldiers when there was nothing going on because it wasn't "on the schedule," so apparently it's ok for taxpayers to pay soldiers to just sit around with thumbs up their butts and not learn how to fight to protect the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to prove to everyone how much authority you have, I promise you no one cares how big you think your manhood is, and all you do by trying is make your soldiers miserable and kill morale.
