Current Employee - First Lieutenant in Fort Lewis, WA
Current Employee - First Lieutenant in Fort Lewis, WA

I have been working at US Army full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Leadership opportunity, pay, benefits, working with Soldiers, new challenges, interesting people from all walks of life, physically challenging, clearly stated values, honorable and morally good (most leadership)

Cons

No control over job, boss, location, difficult on family, long hours, morale very different across many units, officers becoming increasingly career oriented instead of mission focused, many ways to screw up, few ways to get recognized for achievement, endless meetings in place of direct feedback and on ground assessment, certain units can be very competitive and cut throat (aviation especially).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the advice from THE ATLANTIC "why our best officers are leaving" . Allow officers to interview for positions.
