    Pros

    you get paid every two weeks no matter what and depending on where you get stationed, there are always 3 and 4 day weekends.

    Cons

    deploying over seas isn't the most fun and if you end up in an unit that always goes to the field that can get tiresome really quick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    kick out problem soldiers quicker and stop attempting to fix them. let them go and stop wasting tax payers money.

    Current Employee - Army Officer in Lawton, OK

    I have been working at US Army full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best pay and benefits for entry level available, especially on the officer side. Educational benefits and many opportunity to take away tangible skills that are in no way related to warfighting functions.

    Cons

    There are numerous challenges facing the army including downsizing. Talent management for officers and senior enlisted is very hit or miss and there is a good chance you will spend months training one skill that you will never use again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure effective personnel management ensuring needs of army and the Soldier are met.

    Sitting and Waiting, Other than that there isn't much to complain about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice for higher ups is to try and get soldiers better pay , for someone that puts their lives on the line, I find it hard for individuals to make below $35,000 full time.

    Pros

    You will have opportunity to learn foreign languae in CA and receive college credits. You will have the opportunity to take immersion language course in oversea and become subject matter expert in your target language. This job offers various assignment opportunity from military unit to intelligence communities assignments depends on your target languae skill.

    Cons

    Most likely, you will not use your language skill if you are assigned to tatical unit. You may not have choice to choose language you would like to learn. If you become a sublinguist (mean not qualify for your language after taking annual language test), you may have to change the job based on needs of army or may get discharged. It is hard to get promotion after rank of E-7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please review background of soldier and place them to proper assignment for personal development. Allow new recruits to choose their language, instead of forcing them to learn unwated language.
