    I have been working at U.S. Army Reserve part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You will meet some of the best people you will ever know. The pay and benefits are decent, and serving opens many doors that may otherwise have not been available to you.

    Cons

    You will also meet some of the worst people you'll ever know as well. Politics and favoritism are rife, especially the more you move up in rank.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your soldiers, that's what you're there for.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at U.S. Army Reserve full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The US Army Reserve provides a great opportunity to not only serve your Nation, but also your local community. Jobs are tailored to each individuals skills and the opportunity for growth (both laterally and vertical) are boundless. The environment is self-policing and all employees share a commitment toward achieving the same values. Pros include leadership development, education, and camaraderie.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the profession and assignment of missions, one significant con for some people may be loss of individual freedom. This often affects work-life balance with family and friends.
