    Pros

    For a young graduate right out of college you will never find a job that pays this well with so many benefits. You get to mananage you're career with a varied career paths you can always volunteer for. Whether your kicking down doors or managing property there is always a job to do. Several times a year I find myself saying, "I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this."

    Cons

    There are some serious issues the Army is struggling to deal with; you can read about them in the media. Over a decade at War has taken its toll, even on those who've never deployed. Work stress varies from mind numbing boredom to fighting for your life panic, even in garrison. If you're a free thinking individual not sold on the "Army Kool-Aid" you may find yourself in a bind with those who are. For every moment of excitement like you see in the commercials there are a hundred more that are boring, stressful, frustraiting, and painfully tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Let small teams of competent and confident individuals lead the way. Padding the boss's OER/NCOER serves no one.
