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

    Pros

    There are a lot of benefits and the work tends to be fairly easy. As long as you're on time, stay fit, and do what you're told, you'll be fine.

    Cons

    The work is incredibly mindless. There are times where you're expected to come up with your own "training". As a medic I feel that I never do my job unless I'm deployed.

    Advice to Management

    There are way too many medics and they tend to be used for mind numbing army details (picking up trash from the side of the road, picking weeds, clearing and inventorying storage containers, for example). If you're going to enlist medics, use them as medics.
