Free healthcare for the family and myself is the greatest thing overall, but the Army now provides opportunities to partially match TSP and new retirement plans. Free money for college as well, so benefits wise it does not get better than the military!
Used Army benefits to go to a top school in Boston. Be sure to utilize your GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon benefits.
Retirement is the best thing ever
matching 401k, sick and annual leave, medical benefits to include dental and vision.
Great health care for families.
pension and leave that is paid
To me the best things are the 30 days of paid leave a year, health/medical/life insurance, and education benefits.
Best retirement benefits in the country. Pension, healthcare can't be beat. Be prepared to pay up front with tine, freedom, and some frustration. You'll give that in most jobs though.
Best thing about the benefits in the army, is the zero cost. They keep a good record of previous injuries and anything about your medical history. Worst part about military benefits is the service that you receive is based on the region that you are in. Not every base has a full functioning hospital.
Best: Tuition Assistance, Gyms/Commissary, Separate Rations, Dental Worst: Getting seen for medical issues is difficult, weekends count towards leave deductions
