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.

    Appeal System don't take you any where. If you have to appeal any process, let it be know that you will not succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a good time getting to know your supervisors. There is a lot of Toxic Leaders out there and the way to clean the house begins with proper supervision, professional development, and clear understanding of objectives and expectations. There is got to be a better way to evaluate leaders! Explore and make better the 360 assessment tool. Learn to listen to subordinates for a better perspective in your evaluation criteria.
