    I worked at US Army

    Pros

    Great leadership training; great benefits; great people; really challenge yourself. Travel all over the world. Get responsibility at an early age.

    Cons

    Demanding; dangerous; compensation is so-so for enlisted; skills are not always transferable. Senior leadership has to find a better way to promote officer instead of simply using time in grade.

  2.  

    It taught time management, discipline, leadership skills, honesty, duty, respect and integrity.

    I worked at US Army full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It provides you with at least 3 meals a day and a place to lay your head. Promotions come quick if you know how to follow instructions and also quicker if you are ambitious and disciplined. You will always be on the job training and you will more than likely be cross trained to learn all aspects of the job. You are entitled to 30 days leave, females are entitled to 42 days post pregnancy leave and dad's can also get approximately 10 days of leave with their wife. You will meet people and become close friends with them especially during a deployment.

    Cons

    You will have to have the intestinal fortitude to do what is right over the easy wrong. You will have to learn to hold your tongue when you disagree. You will have to learn how to take orders and also learn how to treat all your subordinates as fair as possible even though they may not deserve it. You will work many hours and life will be unfair at time but you will adjust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat personnel fairly and to learn that everyone is not the same and need to be treated differently. One punishment is not the same for all. Sexual harassment needs to be handled by another Brigade so that there are as few many favors to cash in. This is the same for 15-6's. Soldier's under any punishment should be investigated by a different Brigade or let the Post's lawyer's handle situations. Too many unfair judgement and moving Soldiers around to keep them from being punished. It will just continue at the next location.
