    Pros

    Faced the toughest challenges of my life and overcame as part of a team. You learn that what is considered "hard" elsewhere is just another day.

    Cons

    Heavy on the bureaucracy and it can feel like it smothers the parts that are really rewarding. Also,the further removed from soldiers you get on the day to day, the less rewarding it seems.

    Advice to Management

    Soldiers love to soldier. We need to maximize that and minimize distractions from the core mission.

    Pros

    To defend and serve our country while not wearing a solder’s uniform. Providing informational services to our Solders and family members.

    While it would be difficult to learn how the Army operates, it’s not impossible, with additional outside resources it can be accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Newly employees should be trained on how the Army operates in the field to the Headquarters levels, having an comprehensive knowledge would better serve our soldiers and family members.
