    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great training opportunities, benefits and competitive pay. The level of purpose and brotherhood is limited to very few other professions in the world.

    Cons

    Physical and mental anguish, long deployments and training events keep you away from family. If your stuck under poor leadership you can suffer for years until changed. Problems are corrected very slowly if at all. Paperwork is often a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be a hypocrite! Take care of soldiers, don't try to break them to look good! You have leadership with 7 Article15's, who have lost rank 3 times; and they are kicking people out who have spent years proving that they are better than their leadership. What I see happening in my MOS is the skilled personelle are running for the door to ETS while the "free handout" guys are working for promotion by simply saying: "yes, I want to reenlist" and "lets be buddies". People say the Army standard will improve with cuts...I used to believe so, now I think we will be lucky to break even. Birds of a feather; poor leadership will build poor teams of other immoral and inadequate unprofessionals.


  2. "Good development and unique experiences and the opportunity to serve your Nation"
