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 (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    medical, dental, vision, college housing benefits

    Cons

    hours a bit rough. deployments take you away from family for a while. getting appointments for self and family can take an eternity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop kicking out the people with the experience. Look to remove bad leadership and those who are too broken to do the job and deploy.

    Current Employee - Field Artillery Officer in Fort Campbell, KY
    Current Employee - Field Artillery Officer in Fort Campbell, KY

    I have been working at US Army full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will do things people only see in movies or play in video games. The pay is good for officers. The promotion rate is pretty straightforward and as long as you don't committ any crimes and work hard you will be rewarded. As a leader in the army you will change people's lives and have the opportunity to really help people.

    Cons

    Hours and time away from family is insane if you are in a combat arms profession. The medical care can be very poor if you are in an understaffed area. Even when you're not deployed there is an unspoken competition of who can stay in their office away from their family the longest because that's considered "professionalism" to some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
