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 Management

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

    Pros

    The benefits can't be beat, and soldiers have the opportunity to interact and work closely with people from all over the country and many other countries. You travel and live in areas that you would never choose as a civilian, so you can really learn to see the good side of everything if you keep the right attitude.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be challenging. You're never completely off duty, you can always be called in to work holidays, weekends and 24-hour shifts.
