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.

    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.


  2. "An awarding job"
