    Pros

    Opportunities, benefits and learning tools are countless. Everyday there is something new to learn. As a soldier you will definitely understand what it is to have nothing and what it is to manage what you have. There are leaders who care about you and will assist you to be successful and get promoted. There are bonuses and awards given that you will never receive in the civilian world. You get the chance to make a difference on a daily basis with diverse co-workers in many different environments while keeping our country safe.

    There are discounts and other important benefits that are available because you are a soldier or veteran. Take advantage of your resources because there are many.

    Cons

    You have to adapt to being away from your loved ones. There are days where you spend numerous hours in the heat or cold. There is constant change which makes it hard to keep up with the regulations and policies. There are limited resources at times due to budget cuts. A lot of things are redundant. As a soldier that is lower enlisted you have to execute without asking questions the majority of the time, which makes it hard to learn purpose in your day to day activity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that soldiers should be evaluated for promotion as well as demotion with the same level of evaluation as a promotion board. If you are not performing at the correct level then you should not hold the position.
