    I worked at US Army full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many, Many things.
    Pride in national service.
    An enduring sense of dedication, resilience, and continuity in the Army mission to protect and serve the American people.
    Many Soldiers dedicate quality service to the Army
    Career Progression- many places.
    Unit culture can be very good.

    Cons

    Extreme hardship on family.

    Profound dishonesty, malice, and betrayal negatively impact moral, camaraderie, and trust that are important in high performing organizations.

    Training on values, ethics, and integrity should be 'salt' in everything you do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to challenge Soldiers to follow 5 year plans for career development in the Army and beyond. Credentialing, Licensure, and ASI's give Soldiers skill rich abilities to meet Army needs, serve the American people, and bridge to a successful career after Army Service.

    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The US Military is a great place to work because you are not only supporting your country but are receiving training in a variety of skills and leadership abilities. No where else in the world would you be given so much responsibility without needing to prove yourself for years. This is an excellent opportunity that can lead an individual to much personal and professional growth.

    Cons

    Depending on your MOS and when you enlist there may be limited promotion opportunities. This can be effected by injury and ability to pass an oral board.
