Approves of CEO

I have been working at The British Army full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great opportunities for personal development both physically and mentally. You will get to work with some of the best people in the world who have all undergone a selection process to get in!

Cons

The British Army can at times take you away from your friends and family for extended periods. You will be asked to accept a high level of risk, which could be life threatening. There are periods that can often be boring as well as excitement. You have to accept the highs and the lows equally.

Advice to Management

Always provide clear direction and empower those below you.
