Great place to start

Communications (Current Employee) Fort Hood, TX

ProsEnlisted Army is able to provide completely untrained, uneducated persons with a steady paycheck and possibly decent training, depending on the MOS that is picked. The new GI Bill also ensures that all persons with an honorable discharge and 3+ years of service will get their entire undergraduate education paid for. Without the help of the Army, a bunch of kids wouldn't have nearly as good as a career as they would had they stayed home and never joined.

ConsThey do not utilize their personnel to their strengths. They are the embodiment of bureaucracy. If they have staff that exhibit technical potential, there's no guarantee that that person won't end up doing menial tasks because of his/her rank. The GI Bill is awesome, but there are more rewarding branches to join if you are technically inclined. And other branches have better duty stations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The Honor and Privelage to serve my Country like so many before me and so many after me.

    Automated Logistics Specialist (Former Employee) Fort Bragg, NC

    I worked at US Army full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros: Meet alot of great people, trained to be ready at all times something I carry… Cons: The old regulations don't match with what a soldier will go through today, so those need to… Advice to Senior Management: Pay raise to all that serve. Better treatment to all… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Too much bureaucracy and politics

    Scientist (Former Employee) San Antonio, TX

    I worked at US Army as a contractor

    Pros: Honestly I can't think of any. Cons: Very suffocating environment. Too much bureaucracy and politics. More focus is spent on the time you have clocked rather than on your research. No freedom… Advice to Senior Management: Leadership -> Very poor. For upper management, this is the place only to gain some browny points so that they can get something better afterwards. Benefits… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
