    Excellent career choice for the highly motivated and self-disciplined individual

    E6 - Army - Staff Sergeant (Former Employee) Fort Bragg, NC

    ProsExcellent insurance ( if you don't mind being a guinea pig

    Conswork non-stop 24-7, 365days out of the year , spend a lot of time training in the field , some units more than 50% of the year is spent away from the rear, especially the high speed elite units, ie. Airborne , Ranger SF and most if not all of the combat MOS's . ...The pay for an enlisted/NCO in comparison to the actual hours worked is less than desirable

    US Army is the experience of a life time.

    Soldier (Former Employee) Fort Bragg, NC

    ProsThe best reason to work for the US Army is the acceptance into a new family that doesn't judge you on your past, but on your character that you bring to the table.

    ConsThe biggest challenge of being apart of the Army is that it could be hazardous to your health as well as your relationship with your family.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advise to upper management is to always take care of your subordinates and they will always take care of you!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
