    Get Experience, Get clearance. Familiarize self with systems and techniques. Job Security. If you deploy you will get much more experience.

    Have to fight to actually do your job. Constantly used for other non-job related tasks. Only way to improve is through self improvement. Training is usually spent on soldiers not analysts. Superiors rarely able to mentor/teach.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to use your Analyst wisely. Teach commanders what they can/should be doing.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits for you and your family. These benefits include 100% medical and dental. Scholarship called Post 9-11 GI Bill allows you to go to school for 36 months and includes stipends and housing allowance among other things.

    Cons

    It's a 24-7 job. Sometimes power-hungry leaders exercise their "leadership" a little too far. High expectations from civilians often leads to every minute detail of your life to be regulated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your Soldiers while you clean out ineffective leadership. Benefits need to remain intact as the force draws down.
