    I have been working at US Army full-time

    Pros

    - Great for 20 year career with a retirement. Decent pay. Good Health Care.
    - Very Good opportunity for overseas travel and making an impact.

    Cons

    - Promotion selection system is very check the block, leads to poor leaders.
    - Like anywhere some people are great to work with but the opposite is slightly more prevalent. Working well with others should be a higher priority.

    Advice to Management

    - There are better ways to manage talent, don't rely so heavily on the check the block mentality and a two minute look during a board.
    - Common sense and logic should have it's place when invoking Army regulations.

    Pros

    Great benefits and a chance to travel the world. Many interesting places and people to work with and for. Experiences that others will never get to share in.

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunities, pay, and camaraderie.

    Cons

    I don't think there is enough space in this section to list out each con of being in the Army. Lets just say there is a reason why its hemorrhaging Officers and NCOs.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to You: Before you join know what you want out of the Army and take it. Because you will be abused left and right. They'll take your time, talent, and sanity if you let them.

    Pros

    Fulfilling fraternity where you can build relationships that last forever. You go through countless leadership courses throughout your tenure. Military discounts=never mad at that. Pride in wearing the uniform.

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

    Pros

    US Army is great institutions to work in. It provided me with wide variety of knowledge base and skills to have a better future. It provided me with leadership skills, technical and tactical training which you can never find else where. Personally, it gave me a chance to experience all of the values, training and leadership it provides to the best of my ability. I am proud to have served in the military and support our country in any way I could. It gave me the leadership skills that I need to better my future.

    Cons

    Army personnel are known to have a rigid mind that only ask them to follow orders. But it is not the case. Personnel I work with are very smart.

    Advice to Management

    Help the veterans and take care of our Soldiers.
