    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The army takes care of its investment and provides amazing benefits, has taken care of myself and my family very well

    Cons

    The army tries to get every last bit of production out of soldiers, tries to accommodate the needs of the younger soldiers (18-20) year olds even though they need to be brought to army standard in terms of toughness

    Pros

    Traveling all over the world and working with people of different background. Conducting different missions with other militaries from around the world and establishing partnership with those countries

    Spending time way from your family. Harsh work environments sometimes without the basic comforts of home. Sometimes going days without sleep to complete the mission.

    Continue to respect those who work for you and take care of the families they leave behind when they go to war.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at US Army (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    well taken care of as far as benefits like health and housing or food. Experience like no where else

    Cons

    If you don't pick the right job, you will hate your life. If you don't have goals and are not motivated you will hate your life. If you aren't an officer or special operations you will hate your life.

    Advice to Management

    The army needs a full makeover to support better mental health for soldiers and change the promotion standards.

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

    Pros

    You can receive a retirement check at the age of 40 if you enter in the US ARMY at the age of 18yrs of age! You can never go wrong with that. Lots of time off...

    Cons

    Have to prepared to be at work by 5:30am every morning. You have to deploy for a year at a time. You have to prepare yourself for the worst when time calls by pulling guard duty, working on weekends.

    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great travel, great training, good people, stay in shape, guaranteed paycheck twice a month. Free Medical, discounts at most retailers, and weekends off. Payed vacation leave.

    Cons

    waking up at 5 am everyday. away from family for long periods of time. having to move far from hometown. always on call. Soldiers issues can be challenging. having to move every 3 to 4 years. no stability.

    Advice to Management

    Way to much mandatory training which takes valuble time away from leaders and Soldiers. Online training is a joke. none of it is taken seriously by any of the Soldiers or Leaders. Way to much technology for training. to many PowerPoint's and not enough real world scenarios. Training on suicide and sexual assault does not seem to make a difference. leaders and officers say they care to save face and make themselves look good because they have to but most don't seem to really care.
