    The only downsides I had were that, you can't always speak your mind, even if you're right

    I worked at US Army full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    (Officer perspective) Massive responsibility given to you straight out of school; I was responsible for Soldiers and millions in taxpayer dollars of vehicles and equipment. Trains you for the job and gives you a clear path towards promotion.

    Cons

    (Officer perspective) You will get promoted if you don't screw up = which means the most incompetent officers get promoted as well. If you are good at something, your bosses will work you to death. The most terrible officers are given ridiculously simple tasks and told to sit in a corner and stay out of the way. Bad officers don't get fired, work very little and get paid the same amount as you.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of officers who have no business leading. Retain the best! Needs of the Army doesn't work well when people have other options and choose to get out.
