Other Employee Reviews for US Army

  1. "Great place to start a federal career if you can get a foot in the door ~"

    Current Employee - DA Civilian

    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits ... love the compressed work schedule and generous leave (sick and vacation).

    Cons

    Local CPAC is borderline hostile to military spouses - they told a friend with an MBA that she was only qualified for administrative/secretarial positions.

    Too many upper-level civilians are just holding down a desk and seriously need to retire. Others hang on because they are simply making decent money and have no relevant skillset for another employer ... or the job has a minimal commute.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to go down the path of metrics, measure everybody. I know a GS13 who cannot manage spreadsheet basics, but her job is to track employee training -- why is she still there??

    Consider 360 reviews. Reduce duplicative "mandated" Army training sessions which chew up hours and hours of valuable work time. And do more than pay lip service to the concepts of innovation and best practices ... hold your leaders accountable for change management.


  2. "Great organization being destroyed"

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Steady paycheck (when the government doesn't shut down)
    Great benefits
    When not in the field or deployed, decent amount of free time

    Cons

    Culture is changing due to political pressure. It is becoming a zero defect environment.
    Promotions are all about evaluations. If you have a boss you don't get along with while in a critical position for promotion, you are hosed no matter how well you have done in other positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop babying soldiers. Treat them like adults and hold them(not the chain of command) accountable for their actions.
