    I worked at US Army full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are endless opportunities for promotion and advancement if you are hard working working and motivated. At any point in your career you can request assignment to more challenging roles and units. As of 2015, gender-based restrictions are now lifted bringing the organization more in line with broader American society. I worked in the 75th Ranger Regiment and loved the people I worked with and our organizational mission conducting Special Operations raids to support the Global War on Terror.

    Cons

    This is an immense bureaucracy, the Department of Defense is literally the largest employer in the world. The US Army is the largest branch of the DoD. There are protocols, procedures, and regulations like you would not believe. You will be told what to wear, how to act, and what to do, sometimes in ways that might threaten your physical and mental well-being.

    Advice to Management

    In order to find and retain the best people, you have to be deeply involved in your subordinates lives in a way that is simply not found in civilian life. I counseled my team members on everything from their romantic life to making large purchases because anything and everything they do effects their mission readiness. Knowing someone that well enables you to recognize signs of vulnerability and signs of greatness, but it takes an enormous amount or work.
