    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The U.S. Army provides excellent leadership experience as well as select skills dependent upon the training the Army schools provide. The Army also has great educational opportunities!

    Cons

    You can deploy to combat areas within the world at any time. This may hurt family life and limit your abilities to take care of personal needs.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership within the military should strive to balance work with personal life to ensure stress levels for Soldiers don't become too high.

    I have been working at US Army (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    excellent medical benefits; paid leave; reasonable hours; quality training systems are in place; one of the strongest efforts to provide quality, unbiased employee ratings and feedback

    Cons

    possible short notice transfers; some extended hours; can become bureaucratic; technology tends to be behind by at least a couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    continue to work on integration of technologies, but don't become too bogged down with potential security issues. Lowest bidder isn't always the best policy to develop quality, effective support products.

    I worked at US Army as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Receive outstanding training and work within a very large scope as long as you prove yourself competent. Also, it is the Army so you will receive a steady paycheck and outstanding benefits despite the long hours.

    Cons

    Long hours. On several occasions I had 2 week time cards (DMHRSI) that were over 160 hours. The hurry up and wait mentality can be very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Leaders should ensure that Soldiers have adequate time to recover from excessive duty. If you take care of your Soldiers they will take care of you.

    Pros

    ~ Meet and work with fun,adventurous people.
    ~ Travel the World
    ~ VA Home loan eligibility for life! (And use it over and over)
    ~ Retirement if you do 20 years

    ~ Housing or Housing Allowance provided (Tax Free)
    ~ Awesome Job Satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    ~ Change the uniforms to the Afghanistan Pattern
    ~ Either lower gas prices on post or start paying Gas Taxes to local governments. Why does AAFES get to profit what should be gas tax?
    ~ Offer 2 and 3 year enlistments.

    I worked at US Army full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    An Army career offers many opportunities for professional growth. The positions held over time are challenging and rewarding. For those that make it, the Army can be a very tight knit community that is always taking care of each other. Serving in the different regions of the U.S. and in Europe provided experiences and memories I would have never been able to have otherwise.

    Cons

    Extended separation from home in foreign countries is very tasking on the individual and the family. The military family typically develops very shallow roots in the community they live in. Every few years the tree is uprooted and transplanted in a new community and situation. I am certain that like me many military service members long for the day when they can one place home.

    Advice to Management

    Give clear instruction and guidance to your people. Provide the resources necessary to accomplish the mission. Then step back and be amazed as your service members accomplish amazing feats in all environments and circumstances
