    Learned everything I needed to know to get myself started and then some. You get out what you put in.

    UH-60 Crew Chief (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsToughens you up, away time from family, travel, discipline, steady pay, medical. These are all the things you expect when you come in. You also become part of a brother hood that will last you the rest of your life.

    ConsEarly hours, long hours, time away from family..etc.
    You should be ready for "the suck" when you come in.
    As long as you are ok to suck up the crappy parts and learn from them, you'll be fine.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI wanna grow a beard.

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

    Bureaucracy and PC overwhelm common sense

    O3 - Army - Captain (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    Pros- Good entry pay
    - Leadership opportunities
    - Meet some great people
    - Selective organizations within military have great cultures and are mission focused

    Cons- Most of the military is bureaucratic, political, and focused on career advancement at the expense of mission focus and results
    - Professionalism is now equated to agreement, and leaders who ask questions or challenge higher are marginalized
    - Talent (outside selective organizations) is poorly managed and rarely rewarded

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestore vision of generating force that can fight and win the nation's wars

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

    Doesn't live up to the reputation.

    Public Relations Manager (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsGreat pay, okay hours, teaches you leadership and time management skills as well as how to work with difficult people. You get the chance to learn a lot of different skill sets and must become adaptable.

    ConsDeployment, field exercises are obvious and you knew about those when you signed up; unfortunately the Army says it likes to hold itself to a higher standard but when push comes to shove the do not uphold their end. There is plenty of corruption within the ranks and it is very difficult to really find those who wish to take care of Soldiers and keep the people who are worth fighting for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWeed out the bad apples - fight for those who are worth keeping.

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

    Excellent Benefits

    Soldier (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsWell, Education, Growth, Friends, Guaranteed Paycheck, Stability, Job Security, Etc... There really are too many to list.

    ConsConstantly Changing policies, new leadership with weak leadership skills, promotions based on board review of military history and other world history and news, not focused on those with excellent job related skill sets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith the good comes bad, Overall this organization has been my saving grace and I am thankful to have been a part of the team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
