I worked at US Army full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Hundreds of benefits...if you can navigate the system and have the time, and if you live off the active duty side for 20 years and save ALL your money you can have a cool million by the time you are 38

Cons

You are not the owner of your body. You must do what you're told when you're told. Then there is always war. never pleasant

Advice to Management

There is nothing you can do. Because of the size and the complexity created by the military's system of micro management, there is nothing that can be done.
