    I worked at US Army full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    An Army career offers many opportunities for professional growth. The positions held over time are challenging and rewarding. For those that make it, the Army can be a very tight knit community that is always taking care of each other. Serving in the different regions of the U.S. and in Europe provided experiences and memories I would have never been able to have otherwise.

    Cons

    Extended separation from home in foreign countries is very tasking on the individual and the family. The military family typically develops very shallow roots in the community they live in. Every few years the tree is uprooted and transplanted in a new community and situation. I am certain that like me many military service members long for the day when they can one place home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give clear instruction and guidance to your people. Provide the resources necessary to accomplish the mission. Then step back and be amazed as your service members accomplish amazing feats in all environments and circumstances

    I worked at US Army

    Pros

    When you work for the army you are working for an instuition with a long heritage of pride and passion but that does not automatically carry into the future. The army offers oppurtunities that you will find no where else in the world. I was a kid with only a high school degree and I was afforded the oppurtunity to write top secret reports that made their way up to decision makers in the strongest fighting force in the world. I utilized equipment that cost billions of dollars.

    Cons

    The army is a very mechanistic organiztion that will control your life. You are a soldier first, no matter how accomodating the army becomes or portrays themselves to be, you are a soldier first. You will constantly have to put up with imcompetent superiors and will be considered in comtempt if you question a single word out of their mouths, no matter how stupid it is what they are saying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone in the army needs to get some really management training and bring it back to the military. Treat soldiers as though they are people.

    Pros

    Great retirement package after only 20 years.
    Incredible sense of pride in knowing what you do matters.
    Ability to develop unmatched leadership skills.
    Career path is clearly laid out for those wanting to move forward.

    Cons

    Family will suffer, there is no good balance available to a Soldier.
    Education benefits are not as abundant or easy to use as is advertised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivational techniques must be readjusted for the "new Army."
    Leadership should be required to attend communication class to better work with Soldiers.
