    Pros

    My opportunity to work for the US Army has afforded me a vast array of experiences and exposure to the world. I have been able to use it to develop a more well rounded experience in the areas of human capital, training management, risk management, human resources, healthcare services manager, technology hardware and software testing, project and operations management, family relationships mentor, technical equipment operator, protocol, administrative assistant, and subject matter expert in a newly learned skill.

    Cons

    The job is not for someone who dislikes hard work. You need to be proactive, self-managed, and self-motivated on nearly a daily basis. Not only are their physical requirements to maintain an athletic skill set but also the requirement to grow mental capacity via learning new and challenging skill sets from the most fundamental level to the top.

    Advice to Management

    There is a continuous focus on leader development on the policies and procedures developed within the DoD, however there are some skills from the business world that could surely be related to the military with which leaders and senior staff members can use to enhance operations in both the short and long run.
