    I have been working at US Army full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with so many people from so many different walks of life and experience places/things that most people never do. The benefits are great and along with the base pay, makes for a good paying job overall.

    Cons

    Being deployed, away from your family at times, and long hours. It is a 24/7 job, never ends, but worth it.
