  1. Good place during an active war, otherwise too much irrelevant BS.

    Pros

    Pride, Leadership experience, and Esprit de corp

    Cons

    The hours are inconsistent at best with little to no warning of some times week long field training. Maintaining a work-life balance is next to impossible.

    Advice to Management

    The Army is a great employer. It is a lifestyle with an amazing amount of complexity. Unfortunately it is also horrible on soldier's families. While some commanders strive for family time others try to keep soldiers as long as possible without work. Soldier's suicide and divorce rates are notoriously high. I believe there is a very clear connection.
