    Advice to Management

    Quit being "yes" men or women. Recognize when your resources and subordinates are stretched thin and relay that to higher. Make a conscious effort to refrain from having favorites and promote your subordinates based on merit. And don't be afraid to demote your subordinates as well. It is best to cut the cancer out before it infects the rest. Document everything; evidence is key.

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

    Pros

    Steady job, good benefits, fantastic job training that can be applicable to the real world depending on what MOS you choose. If you get into a good unit, the people there can become lifelong friends.

    Cons

    Treated like you are five years old at time. Hierarchy can be very skewed. Intelligent people leave the organization after they have utilized all of their benefits to go work for much higher salaries in the private sector.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't matter as it will fall on deaf ears. Those who outrank others simply think they don't have to listen.
