    Pros

    Amazing dedicated people perform difficult and risky tasks in a safe manner. This develops leadership and confidence further improving the work force.

    Cons

    Final numbers and pay are determined by Congress. The reduction to 490,000 is acceptable, but talk of reductions to 420,000 in the current strategic environment don't make senses. The time away from home for deployments has a negative impact on relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An Army smaller than 490,000 is a bad idea.

    Former Employee - U S Army Sergeant First Class E7 in Fort Bragg, NC

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

    Pros

    Working here allowed me to develop leadership skills that are needed to take care of work, Soldiers and their families. I was given the opportunity to lead and set good examples for others to emulate. I always fostered a good work environment in the work place. I really understood the value of team. I knew that it wasn't about me. It was about everyone else that I had the opportunity to lead, train and mentor.

    Cons

    In this profession it requires you to conduct a lot of training which is needed, but unfortunately the training requires you to leave your family a lot of times for days, weeks, months and year at a time. Even though I think that the promotion system is not fair. I was able to make it to a senior level of my profession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I advised senior management on water operations planning procedures that greatly contributed to the overall success during task force Haiti. I advised upper echelon on water training concepts that able a water purification team to win first place in an Army wide competition.As the materiael manager in Iraq I managed, briefed, planned and coordinated fuel and water operations as well supplements throughout Multi-National Division Iraq.
