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

    Pros

    Camaraderie, benefits (also a Con), generous retirement(?), Learning of life skills, travel, cultural immersion, change jobs after no more than two years in one position. Decent promotion rate compared to civilian world. Easy to figure out what to wear every day!

    Cons

    Time away from family. Toxic leadership. Physical wear on the body. Pay compared to private sector/government jobs. Too much time spent training on social agenda issues... (Prevention of Sexual Harassment, EO, Safety...)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on polishing the diamonds in the rough... Too much time is spent fawning over "all-american wonder kids" who end up leaving the service unhappy anyway... Invest in those that are going to stay!

    Pros

    Great travel and experience with highly talented and motivated peers. Ability to be part of large projects and lead teams through tough situations.

    Cons

    Time away from family, long work days, culture of do as I do or you quickly become an outsider. Lots of talk of inclusion when the exact opposite is the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Let free thinkers roam and add to the organizational greatness instead of expecting everyone to conform to norms.

    Pros

    The Army is very structured environment that holds its members/employees to a higher standard than those not in the Army. It also provide great benefits and retirement.

    Cons

    In the Army you are required to move every three years and sometimes sooner. After 25 years in the Army, I have myself and my family approximately 16 times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep service members on station no less than five years, this provide continuity and family integration with the community.
