    Pros

    In this field you will learn to do a lot of everything. Computer networks, radio operations, spectrum management, and all things electronic. From setting up a P.A. sound system to deploying and advanced computer network from scratch.

    Cons

    You sometimes have little sleep to work on and the tools you have to use may predate dinosaurs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the knowledge flowing. Since technology is a field that is ever changing you should keep everyone up to date on all the possible knowledge out in the world pertaining to the field.

    Pros

    Stable check every 1st and 15th. You will meet good people. You get free money to go to school.

    Cons

    Deal with more than the fair share of work crap. You spend a lot of time away from family. Promotion isn't primarily based on your job performance.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Many checks and balances on leadership resulting in a constructive work environment. A brotherhood. Unique experiences that you can't get anywhere else. The best people I know I met in the Army. You need to know that if you choose combat arms or other jobs that are vital to war then you are going to spend a lot of your time away. I spent over 3 years away out of my total 8 years.

    Cons

    Long deployments. Garrison regulations can get annoying. I finished in a specialized unit and they were a lot more laid back about the silly regulations that don't really matter.

    Pros

    Benefits were great , pay was great, advancement in professional development, paid time off , family time, working with people from all walks of life learning new things daily, to make things better.

    Cons

    Deployments, working for people that do not appreciate the work that your doing on a daily that think that know your job when they done know how things actually work. Just to name something but every job has its ups and downs.

    Pros

    Job security. Get to serve your country. Great healthcare benefits. Qualify for the Post 911 GI Bill after 3 years.

    Cons

    The Army post 911 is desperate for people and you have to accept that the quality of your personnel goes down significantly.

    Advice to Management

    It's too easy to make rank in the Army. Every officer seems to get excellent Officer Evaluation Reports (OER) regardless of performance. They need to distinguish between the top performers and the mediocre ones.

    I am a strong minded person who has a take charge attitude to always accomplish everything I set out to do.
