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

Pros

Structure and opportunities to challenge yourself. Learn new skills and experience that will bring you ahead of the pack.

Cons

Pick your path carefully, especially as an officer. They will have secondary and tertiary effects on your future options.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on retaining your most experience and knowledgeable workers, not the new ones. Revamp the promotion system so that unqualified people don't lead, or if they admit they aren't ready yet, don't force them up or out.

    I worked at US Army

    Pros

    There isn't a typical day which is great. Ever changing environment shows if you going to either sink or swim. Resiliency is the key and the leadership skills you learn on the way isn't match to anything you can find anywhere else.

    Cons

    Standards and policies only apply to those who don't fit into the in crowd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can read between the lines and it is quality you want not quantity.
