    Pros

    Various opportunities excel and to perfect your craft. I am forever grateful for such an opportunity.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons regarding this organization; however, if I was to complain about anything, it would be time spent away from friends and family (so many deployments)

    Advice to Management

    The United States Army was the best organization for me. It taught me leadership abilities, and responsibilities. There is no greater place.

    Pros

    This organization will train you in logistics, personnel, and operations. Not only will you learn to manage soldiers and their welfare; you will plan large scale training exercise that are very complex and require several moving pieces. This allows you to be able to handle difficult situations under stress, whether it may be hunger, lack of sleep, or just a simple overwhelming of workload.

    Cons

    No cons at the moment. However the Army is always adapting. You must be resilient and not be afraid to fail.
