    Pros

    Adventurous, challenging, build great friendships, teamwork, training and travel. If you are up for the task go for it.

    Cons

    Deployments, long long days. Not really much to say other than those. It is what ever you make of it.

    Continue to improve the quality of life for your Soldiers and their families.

    Pros

    30 days Paid vacation every year plus all federal holidays. All medical and dental insurance is free. Great place for entry level and on up.

    Cons

    Occasional deployments to austere regions and combat situations. Sometimes having to work 24 hours straight.

    Advice to Management

    Management is the federal government and the department of defense and so beyond taking advice.

    Pros

    Over 90 individual generalist and manager duties as Human Resources Officer. Technical human resources advisory under strenuous and short suspense conditions.

    Cons

    Service directly following college leads to a lack of familiarization with non-military and non-government working environments. High stress environments put tremendous strain on physical and mental endurance capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Please take time to tell civilian work sector senior leaders that less than 10% of 1% of the US population joins the Armed Forces. As a result, we Service-members have to cover down on a multitude of responsibilities, wearing multiple hats and remaining flexible at all times. We do not consider ourselves better than anyone else, we all do not have PTSD, we all are not angry and we GREATLY appreciate the opportunity to work for caring individuals following our Active/Reserve military careers. Also, please take time to create a simple 1-slide timeline/course-of-action for transitioning service members. Model this after a successful transition which has taken place before, ensuring the notes section is filled to the brim with lessons-learned.

    Pros

    Comraderie, discipline, Leadership, challenges and adventure.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, bad leaders that find a way to get promoted. Too many lazy Soldiers abusing the system.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of pushing units to reach retention rates, commend them for being more selective and getting rid of bad apples wearing the uniform.
