    Current Employee - Logistics Manager in Fort Stewart, GA

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

    Pros

    I used to love coming to work knowing I was in one of the Best Divisions in the Army. There is allot of History in this Unit. There will be allot more History to be made here. What other Divsion has a Mascot? We have Rocky !!

    Cons

    Lack of planning. Everything is a reaction. Used to things were better planned and thought through. That information was fed down to the lowest level so at least everyone knew the direction to face when moving forward with a project, mission or event. Now days it seems middle managers know less than they used to and this effects all of those below them in a not so favorable way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to plan better so you have less knee jerk decisions being made and soldiers are not getting jerked around

    Pros

    There are nigh infinite opportunities for growth with the US Army. There are many schools, benefits advantages and available to any and every soldier. Rather enlisted or commissioned, your career is in your hands.

    Cons

    You are literally the one of many defenders of the nation. As such, many deployments will send you to the most dangerous places across the world. Because of the government or other financial hiccups, your pay may be delayed based on your countries financial situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place your soldiers 1st, always.
