    Pros

    Focused on delivering the best patient care for the best patients in the world. Many cutting edge capabilities and resources, especially in terms of electronic health records and associated technologies. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic, sometimes can be inflexible. Some jobs require very long hours, especially for military personnel, not so much for civilian and contract employees. Good communications and many opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus on collaboration with the other Services and with the VA. The Nationwide Health Information Network (NwHIN) is a strategic opportunity that the AMEDD has been presented with, but has not engaged on. We are ceding this effort to MHS without taking any sort of leadership role.

    I worked at U.S. Army Healthcare (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professional autonomy. Primary musculoskeletal screeners in military healthcare system. Our soldiers, vets, & their families deserve the best care available. Best/newest technology & resources available.

    Cons

    You are "owned" by Uncle Sam. Must respect others because of rank worn on their shoulders rather than the type of human being they are.

    Advice to Management

    Mentor rather than continue the political "dog & pony" show.

    Amazing clients. Doing your part to deliver amazing healthcare to the military family!

    Pros

    Some of the Pros working in the Army are the pay, the benefits, the time off, the travel, and the people you get to work with.

    Cons

    Some of the Cons working in the Army is the time away from family, and the inability to stay in as long as you can preform. Even if you are a high preform you only get a limited time in each grade or position before you must move on or get out.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to even the smallest issue because ware there is smoke there may be fire.
