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

    Pros

    Great people from all walks of life, "meaningful" work, and they take care of soldiers and their families pretty well

    Cons

    Lot of downtime, lot of details, lot of dog and pony show stuff, lot of bureaucracy, lot of idiot supervisors and you can't do much about it, lots of micromanagement from battalion and brigade levels

    Advice to Management

    My commanders at battalion and brigade level were horrible, both were promoted. Just because you make it through a deployment without shooting yourself in the foot doesn't mean you are ready for the next level. Whats the saying? Lots of officers that would make good company commanders, unfortunately they're leading battalions and brigades? something like that

    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent experience with many opportunities to lead and manage. Good, stable income with excellent benefits and available resources.

    Cons

    The Army can seem very obtrusive at times. You are a soldier 24/7, which is understandable, but it can wear on you. It is not as bad if you are an officer. Time away from friends and family can be a challenge, especially if you have a spouse and kids.

    Advice to Management

    At times, the Army feels very risk averse with risk mitigation and safety concerns micro-managed to the extreme. Leaders are frequently held responsible for individual soldiers making dumb decisions both on and off duty that the leader has no control over.
