      Pros

      Achieve a sense of fulfillment for serving a patriotic duty to protect and defend the Constitution, develop leadership skills, travel the world, make countless friends, housing allowance, free healthcare

      Cons

      The quality of life varies greatly between officers and enlisted and amongst specific jobs within the military, support for military spouses and family development is lacking, inability to live where you want, bound to more restrictive laws (UCMJ) than civilian counterparts

      A Career for the Smart and the Brave

      Apr 7, 2021 - Airborne Systems Engineer in Offutt AFB, NE
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Full benefits and retirement options no matter how long you enlist is a new and important option for those joining the service. Even if the job you get isn't the most exciting, you still get a solid salary, full medical benefits, a retirement plan, college tuition, and can be a stepping stone towards a civilian career. I recommend this job to anyone who is able and doesn't have a clear path for themselves.

      Cons

      The military isn't for everyone. The chain of command structure is often difficult to acclimatize to and regular PT is a must. These jobs REQUIRE you to stay in shape, but it's not a lot asked considering all the benefits. Another con is (with most jobs) difficult work hours and inefficiency. I've watched countless man hours and tax payer dollars wasted on issues that didn't matter or to eventually be scrapped and gone to waste.

      Fantastic Career

      Apr 27, 2021 - Senior Attorney in Langley AFB, VA

      Pros

      Exceptionally broad legal portfolio. Offices committed to diversity of thought and inclusion of perspective. Extremely interesting work and opportunity to serve world-wide. No two days will be the same.

      Cons

      No two days will be the same :)...there are none. I was able to practice public international law, military justice, cyber, operations law and a host of other areas including environmental, fiscal, contracting/acquisitions and had opportunities to lead throughout. This is an organization where you are part of something bigger than yourself.
