I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Structure and opportunities to challenge yourself. Learn new skills and experience that will bring you ahead of the pack.

Cons

Pick your path carefully, especially as an officer. They will have secondary and tertiary effects on your future options.

Advice to Management

Focus on retaining your most experience and knowledgeable workers, not the new ones. Revamp the promotion system so that unqualified people don't lead, or if they admit they aren't ready yet, don't force them up or out.

    I worked at US Army full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My military career has been good overall and has granted me many things: good pay, travel opportunities, free medical care, paid training and opportunities to broaden my experience and earn promotions. The days off and leave benefits are also great even though when you work, you work hard. The military is one of the few institutions in the nation where one can get the pay, training and applicable real world experience at the same time.

    Cons

    Some duty assignments can negatively affect work-life balance they can require you to spend a significant amount of time away from family; there is opportunity for personal growth in terms of education, but in some units school is encouraged and supported in word but not in deed
