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

    Pros

    Extraordinary benefits: free medical, dental, room and board aka “a cot and three hots,” inexpensive life insurance which may be continued after ETS. Some recruits are afforded an opportunity to serve overseas in their first assignment or may be offered one after their first enlistment is finished. Over 200 jobs available to choose from if you qualify and if there are openings. The rewards of service are in the experience which only a damn fine few have partook, and will last throughout a Soldier’s life with the pride which may come from having endured to the end, whether that be 4, 14, or 24 years serving our Nation at the tip of the spear, or supporting those who are.

    Cons

    Not every day will be ranges and trigger pulling. The machines of war require maintenance so there will many days working in the motor pool to maintain readiness. Some days will flat out be a challenge and will make a Soldier question his or her resolve. Long hours, and May be many days away from home missing family life-events.
    There will be a LOT of acronyms. Get used to it.

    Advice to Management

    New officers will have to recognize the knowledge and skills of the NCO Corps, earned from their many more years of serving, yet remain the Vanguard of duty, commitment, professionalism, and the leader the Soldiers as well as the NCO leaders deserve. Guide, coach, mentor, learn. In order to lead, you must get your hands literally dirty sometimes while you sweat and work hard with your Soldiers, and may be the last to lay your head down after a long day. You will be the last to eat, and that’s as it should be—your Soldiers are watching, and you are responsible for their failings, and recognize THEM for their successes.
    Most of the above is also true for the NCO leaders.
    If you are not successful in the Army, it is entirely your own fault. Your career progression is hard earned, and well-deserved when it comes; it is also earned if you do not progress. The ball is entirely in your court to earn increasing levels of responsibility.
