    I have been working at US Army full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Can be some of the most rewarding experiences and training, with great opportunities and rewards for serving. Most service professionals are outstanding to work with and for. Accomplishing missions and keeping America safe is a sacred trust.

    Cons

    When working for a less than professional superior there is no recourse or escape. When times are tough, they can be long and seem never ending.

    Advice to Management

    Need to tighten up on counseling at all levels, continue to make strides to make it more effective at the enlisted and non commissioned officer levels but officer counselling needs a total overhaul if standards aren't going to be enforced for initial and follow up counseling dates.
