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

Pros

The relationships and communication skills one builds while working in the service is by far the greatest pro. The variety of people and attitudes that a Soldier learns to deal with and accomodate is untouchable by any civilian employer making that Soldier a valuable asset to any organization.

Cons

Soldiers tend to not be as educated as their civilian counterpart when leaving exiting service. Usually due to work demands and competing requirements that engulf the Soldiers time and efforts. That being said, there may be a lack of education but I can almost always guarentee there will be a plethora of leadership, supervisory, and hands on experience that in my option trumps baseline education every time.

Advice to Management

Dont sell soldiers short because they may not posses all the requirements you place in a job announcement, given the chance I can almost bet every time that a Soldier will out do any civilian when it comes to getting work done if griveb the opportunity and proper guidance.
