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

    Pros

    I spent over 20+ years serving as a Army officer -- Leading, Inspiring and Serving our nation and America's sons and daughters. It was the greatest honor and privilege of my military career to lead and mentor the future generation of leaders. The brotherhood shared is unparalleled -- relationships and friendships are lasting and will be cherished forever!

    Cons

    Looking back on my 20+ military career, the unpredictability and temporary nature of the military lifestyle can impact the family especially when your children get older and resist moving and starting over again. Senior Officers and NCOs need to balance the military with family needs which becomes more difficult the longer the serve.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to reward people who invest and sacrifice their lives and families for the lifestyle and culture with increased pay and benefits especially those who successfully complete 20 years. If the military transitions to a 401K retirement plan, in my opinion, they will lose their best and brightest leaders to the corporate America.
