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

    Pros

    - Fantastic camaraderie - I've never experienced a bond like this with any other working professionals on the civilian side, and likely never will again. There's certainly something to it, when you work, train, sweat, and embrace the challenges as a team that are commonplace in the uniformed services. - Acceptable pay for the work that you do, considering it is "part time." - Training opportunities all over the US...

    Cons

    - Drill weekends can be draining; in a nutshell, you are trying to accomplish tasks, training, and numerous months of forward planning that an active duty unit would over the course of a month, in a matter of 2-3 days. - If you are in a position of leadership, Non-Commissioned Officer, Warrant Officer, or Commissioned Officer, expect to have to deal with constant e-mail flow on a daily basis, teleconferences, training...

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

    Pros

    I like the fact I am able to pursue a civilian career along with a military career. You receive the training necessary to have a understanding of what needs to be done in your respective field. Great networking opportunities.

    Cons

    It is only part-time which is understood upon signing your contract. Low pay for the level of responsibility you are still expected to maintain.

    Advice to Management

    Get congress to quit cutting pay.

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

    Pros

    Helping Soldiers, feeling like you are making a difference for one person

    Cons

    Do not value the civilian employee, worked hard and no mechanism for reward for exceptional work performance. Expect civilian's to be Soldiers.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with the Military Technician program and make all of your positions Dept of the Army Civilians to get the right people in the job and keep them.
