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

Pros

Travel and working with high caliber team members.

Cons

Change in the culture appears to be left of center and new problems are on the horizon. I wish you well as you meet these obstacles.

Advice to Management

Always be ready and able to get your hands dirty. You will accomplish more through earning the respect of your team than being the single thinker. Together Each Achieves More (TEAM)

    Pros

    Of all of the military branches, the Army has the most leeway in terms of what you can do. You can do any job you are willing to try out for/put in the time to get, and your career is what you are willing to make of it.

    Cons

    Family, friends, quality of life are all determined by the Army. The Army is the most bureaucratic of the branches with the most cookie cutter application of policies, systems, and way-things-are-done-isms. You will do more sitting and waiting, paperwork, late hours, and observe more inefficient bad decisions that effect hundreds of people than you could possibly imagine.

    Advice to Management

    Nobody gives a s---- about the new physical fitness uniform. Thanks for the beret, Universal Camouflage, and appearance standards that vary unit to unit, based on the personal feelings, pet peeves, SOPs and interpretation of a senior individual.

    Pros

    benefits are great the friends you make better

    Cons

    promotion system broken, it only takes one bad leader to destroy your experience

    Advice to Management

    consider leadership aptitude when promoting E5 not just run time and memorization of creed
