    Pros

    Toughens you up, away time from family, travel, discipline, steady pay, medical. These are all the things you expect when you come in. You also become part of a brother hood that will last you the rest of your life.

    Cons

    Early hours, long hours, time away from family..etc.
    You should be ready for "the suck" when you come in.
    As long as you are ok to suck up the crappy parts and learn from them, you'll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    I wanna grow a beard.

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

    Pros

    Great work experience and pretty good pay. The benefits are decent and the Army tries to take care of it's people for the most part. Great leadership training. In the logistics field, you get a lot of great experience in a very short period of time. As long as you pick you job wisely, you can set yourself up for a good follow up job. This job forces you to constantly improve your interpersonal communication skills and to be open minded. To be successful you need to be good at teamwork and not be a "yes man" (unless you are making the Army a career, then you need to be a suck up). Overall very good experience. If you choose your path wisely, you will gain great experience in a very short period of time, and maybe even meet some really cool people that you would have never met if you were not in the Army.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is not the best. Be prepared to have the majority of your leaders be poor/weak leaders. The rigid rank system allows for many mediocre or poor leaders to continually move up the ranks. If you are good at your job, you will be rewarded with more work. If you are bad at your job, they will give your work to someone who is going to get it done. There is no performance bonuses or incentives. If you outperform someone, but they came in the Army even a few months before you, they will get promoted before you. Most of the really good officers get burnt out and frustrated with the Army and get out resulting in the bad, poor performers, and mediocre officers becoming career Soldiers who move up the ranks. Due to all the budget cuts and draw down in personnel, the outlook for this job in the near future is getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that the Army is losing many of its best leaders, both Officers and NCOs. Do your best to develop and reward those good Officers and NCOs with more flexibility to control their own careers. The Army is all about what the Army needs. In order to keep better people in longer, you need to reward those Soldiers who have proven themselves by helping them to get certain key jobs for career development, or certain duty stations of their choice. Those small changes will help dramatically.
