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

Pros

Good benefits, good compensation, a few opportunities to travel, GI Bill

Cons

getting a good NCO or good people is a roll of the dice, its going to be very bad and its going to be good, everyone's experience is different. Mine has been both bad and good, I don't regret my decision to join.

    I have been working at US Army full-time

    Pros

    This job has great pay and benefits and if you don't like your current boss or job you'll get a new one in 2-3 years.

    Cons

    You will spend lots of time away from home and you are just a small cog in a huge machine (over 400,000 employees).

    I have been working at US Army full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A month of vacation every year, almost free healthcare, eye-opening way to meet people from all different walks of life and see different cultures, pays the bills.

    Cons

    Good Soldiers are hardly ever recognized for their hard work. The higher-ups always take credit. "Trouble" Soldiers get the best treatment because if they can't do anything right, no one wants them to do anything or be hanging around to mess something up, so they are sent away (home). Micromanagement makes you feel like a four year old that needs constant supervision. Long hours. Leadership is too concerned about making themselves look good to their superiors to care about Soldiers' needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the problems by recognizing the Soldiers who actually do the leg work.
    Punish the dirtbags accordingly. Stop giving them the benefit of the doubt or pushing them to the side so they get every day off. Don't promote them faster than their peers so they can catch back up the the rank they "should be".
    Stop micromanagement! Treat adults like adults, not toddlers.
    Start caring for your Soldiers instead of just caring about making yourself look better.
