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

    Pros

    The educational benefits (especially prior to 2013) are exceptional. The leadership training is designed to mold the individual from a follower into a leader. Not saying it successfully does this in all instances, it is more than most organizations do to prepare employees for increased responsibilities.
    Personnel are given premium training in order to perform their occupations. Top performers are recognized for excelling and exceeding course standards.
    This is one of the most diverse organizations in the world. The Army consistently leads the nation in integration initiatives and it continues to do so with its first female Bradley Fighting Vehicle Commander (who has been recognized for being the best crew commander in her Brigade).

    Cons

    Unfortunately the selection process for promotion leaves much to be desired. Far too much emphasis is placed on physical prowess and not enough on track-able (traceable) quantitative data based results. Where as it is possible to be exceptional in both areas, there have been too many instances where those selected for senior positions lack the experience, education, and strategic vision that is often highlighted by senior leaders as the qualities that are being sought in future leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp promotions and assignments system, eliminate the favoritism, and give all personnel a level playing field on which to compete.
