    Current Employee - Military Officer in Fort Stewart, GA
    Current Employee - Military Officer in Fort Stewart, GA

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

    Pros

    -Good pay if you are a officer
    -30 days of leave a year
    -Health Care
    -Training
    -Housing Allowance is great
    -Leading men and woman

    Cons

    I served both as Enlisted and as a Officer, over the course of 13 years, I've been on several combat deployments and was rated above my peers. However, the Army is downsizing and I was selected for involuntary seperation. 13 years of service no longer mattered and I'm a little bitter about the situation.

    The Army has allowed me to go into the reserves and I was offered a job in Washington, D.C. on a Active Duty basis, but I'm done with the Army and the Military full-time. It isn't what you do in the Army, it is who you know. My senior rater played favorites and didn't look out for me or other soldiers. At the end of the day, the Army is poltical and I wasn't that good at the part of the game.

    My advice to anyone who wants to serve in the Military....join the Navy or Air Force. The Army has a poor history of promoting African Americans, women and ethnic people as a whole. Look at the General Officers, many are white males, who have been to West Point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There isn't really any advice to give the Army, because they react to issues at the speed of a Glacier. There are lots of issues right now, downsizing, Sexual harrassment and Suicide are just a few issues as a whole the Army is sucking at right now and it has been an issue for years and again the Army has been slow to address the problems. The Army is really a "Old Boy's" club and if I could go back in time....I wouldn;t have joined, but I wanted to serve my country in a time of war. I'm looking forward to joining a seperate organization that looks beyond skin color and college background.

    Former Employee - E4 - Army - Corporal in Fort Stewart, GA

    I worked at US Army as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was in all a great experience. Being deployed twice to Iraq was the best and worst times of my life. The army took care of me and made me into the man I am now. A lot of strangers turned into brothers, and friends I lost turned into a greater reason to live.

    Cons

    The army is always and lately not for the better. They need to keep politics out of combat and remember our roots and traditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back and look at how your ruining the greatest fighting force in the world!!!

    Pros

    I enjoyed working in teams to achieve a common goal. Deployment was a learning experience, taught myself not to take life for granted.

    Cons

    The pay was not good and getting promoted was a long process and there was a ceiling on how much a person can make. Also there was not a lot of time an individual could spend with their family.
