Best- The care for soldiers on active duty is generally good. Education benefits are hard to beat. Worst- Long hours and deployments hinder family time.
Socialized healthcare is horrible. You may not see the same doctor twice.
Good if you're an officer, but it can be challenging for enlisted personnel especially when you have a family of your own.
A wide variety of benefits all with pros cons and loopholes.
One cannot beat the benefits long term. Sure other companies offer better compensation packages but not for the long haul. Good opportunity for training and education if you want it and are qualified.
While this job isn't for everyone, the opportunities are endless and while you work hard they give you great options to play hard
Offers program that allows time for fitness. The program is temporary, but long enough to help make it a habit!
Best is the TSP Thrift Savings Plan, the pay is average compared to civilian compared work/responsibilities, worldwide travel, foreign country assignments with family along, the military people. Worst is that the TSP came late in my career, the constant deployments, the terrible deployment locations, the over committed and perpetual tasks that make it impossible to get needed mission work done. The physical wear and tear. The emotional strain.
