    I worked at US Army full-time

    Pros

    Life long friendships, learn a skill or trade, travel, discipline.

    Cons

    Freedom of speech is a minimum, freedom to do many things are limited and sometimes not available.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of persons who are overweight, get in trouble constantly, and are not needed rather than getting rid of soldiers with tattoos and minor issues.


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

    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.
