    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generally speaking, you can trust the intentions of all the people you work with. There will always be bad apples in a group, but the character of the vast majority is very trustworthy.

    Cons

    Inefficient use of Armed Forces by politicians; feeling responsible not only for your own actions for the welfare of your Soldiers' well-being, but also their (very often) very poor decisions for their own well-being.

    Advice to Management

    Let people be responsible for their own lives, cut the leash, trust leaders to make good decisions and train their Soldiers.
