    Pros

    The Army gives a person a great start that can lead to a very successful career. The skills obtained in the Army are of the sort that can be put to use in any other occupation with ease.

    Cons

    Deploying to hostile areas is the biggest con that Soldiers face in the Army. It is not pleasant going into harm's way but all to often necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put emphasis on the needs of the Soldiers. Putting Soldiers first will allow mission accomplishment to go much smoother.

    Pros

    Great place to advance career even if you do not plan to stay in the military. I had many opportunities after leaving.

    Cons

    Work Life balance can be difficult to deal with especially with the long deployments, however there are always multiple 4 day weekends packed into every month.

    Pros

    In the US Army, it gives you experiences that no other job will. I worked with different people in different cultures and back grounds that work very well together as a team. There is a lot of traveling, all over the world in my case that most jobs won't offer.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is part of the pro that you have to travel a lot, and sometimes move to other companies or in my case units and get used to new people. At the same time it makes you more adaptable so it really becomes a pro.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have really any advice to management, because I had a lot of different bosses and they were all good and what they do.

    Pros

    Great educational opportunities for everyone, gain a braod overview of the world and great leadership skills

    Cons

    Senior management is very fickle, I suggest doing a term of service and then quickly getting out. This is not an organization you want to make a career of.

    Advice to Management

    Zero defect is a bad way to run any organization and with the number of rules the Army has in place you have to understand your average person will break a rule or two over the years. Stop flushing some of your best talent for silly mistakes.

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

    Pros

    1. You get almost every weekend off including holidays
    2. Teaches you to be more depending on team versus self
    3. Grows you as and individual to become a leader not just a follower
    4. A lot of flexibility
    5. Teaches patience, resiliency, and perserverance
    6. Unlimited Education potential free

    Cons

    1. Can be deployed for long times away from families 9 months - 15 months depending on Unit
    2. Too many easily changable policies and guidelines
    3. Promotions aren't job related at all.

    Advice to Management

    Make policies that change as a whole not individually, and dont let individual brigades be able to change those policies, so when soldiers move unit to unit they dont spend hundreds of dollars adjusting to different policies.
