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

    Pros

    Good health care, housing and pay you can raise a family on. The Army really does take care of your family.

    Cons

    Deployments and time away from family can be hard. Large pay gap between NCOs and officers does not repsent the abilities of the person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the pay gap between officers and NCOs. Give the average Soldier more control over duty assignments.

    Pros

    leadership, culture, traditoins and about the best medical and dental anyone will find. Builds great leaders

    stop trying to make yourself sound better on paper at the expense of your soldiers

    I have been working at US Army

    Pros

    Very good benefits and great job security. Many opportunities to gain leadership and management experience especially as a young person. Will be provided with a significant amount of responsibility for people and property at a very young age.

    Experience and culture will differ significantly based on current unit leadership. Hours can be extremely long and extend into the weekends frequently. Deployments can be 9-12 months away from family with little opportunity to take a mid-tour leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frequently conduct and take seriously all sensing sessions to learn the thoughts of Soldiers at all levels. Organizational by in will excel the organization to great potential.

    Former Employee - 25U in Colorado Springs, CO
    Former Employee - 25U in Colorado Springs, CO

    I worked at US Army full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Leadership experience, healthcare, travel, pay, on the job training, paid vacation, promotion opportunities.... the list of benefits stretches a mile long, and then some.

    Cons

    Transitioning out of the military may be a hassle, disassociates people with civilian life, some opportunities for employment may not be there, constant travel may be an issue, deployment may be an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no real advice....I feel that the Army does a good job in taking care of their active soldiers...when that soldier goes reserve or guard, the army doesn't care about the transition. it may be different for others. im only speaking out of personal experience.
