"Not bad"

Current Employee - Anonymous
Current Employee - Anonymous

Pros

Defiantly not a bad career choice, full benefits, retirement and what not. Not for the faint of heart or someone who passes out quickly.

Cons

A lot of sitting around and horsing. Around. Sometimes super easy, other times you get knocked on your butt. You won't make it far if you aren't motivated.

Advice to Management

Think about the privates needs. A lot of officers/ NCOs always pick on 3-4 privates and leave the others alone.

    Pros

    -Be a part of something bigger than yourself
    -Help others on a global scale

    Cons

    -Highly demanding (average of 50hrs a week, even at home station
    -At first, the only way to prove yourself is through your Physical Fitness score. This means that idiots with little to no leadership skills or critical thinking skills receive more "atta-boy's" and higher performance evaluations, than those who are far more competent but may only be a generally fit person.

    Advice to Management

    Place less emphasis on whether a leader has a 300+ PT Score and more emphasis on actual performance and willingness of subordinates to follow.


  2. "Did Army stuff."

    Pros

    Deploying was the best. I felt like what I was trained to do was really put to the test in Afghanistan.

    Cons

    Low pay, health benefits are not what they seem, cut rate doctors, brand new LTs think they know everything.
