    An Army Career

    Army Officer (Current Employee) Fort Stewart, GA

    ProsPay, education, great opportunities for advancement, leave time, travel, medical. the Army is a great career if you like a structured work environment.

    The Infantry Branch is full of politics and people trying to use you. No real care for Soldiers.

    Army Officer (Former Employee) Fort Benning, GA

    ProsGood pay and benefits and the work/life balance is so bad you save a lot of money.
    Another pro is you can get USAA.

    ConsHard to find a senior leader that is a good mentor. Most senior Officers are just checking the block for their OER's when they build relationships. People that play the politics game make it past Major, leaders that care about their people more than the game get out at Major.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the atmosphere by changing the procedures. A lot of good leaders get sick and tired of the games and get out early. The OER system definitely needs to be revamped.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I was able to gain life experiences, learn about myself, and create friendships that last forever.

    19D Cavalry Scout (Former Employee) Fort Stewart, GA

    ProsYou are paid extra to cover housing and uniforms. The friendships that can be made are ones you can count on. It is a job you can be proud of.

    ConsMuch time can be spent training or deployed away from family. Transitioning out of the service into the civilian world can be rough. Time off can only be taken when everyone else takes it, not just when you want.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore family time would be great.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
