    I worked at US Army (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had steady pay, housing, meals, free uniforms, free health care, most holidays off, traveled the US and Europe/Far East, met lots of people, challenging

    Cons

    Might work long hours (not a typical 9-5 job) and have weekend/holiday duties. Working conditions may be harsh - sweltering swamp, hot desert, frigid mountains with little to no human comforts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the motto "Train as you fight" alive. No time-outs.
