    Pros

    The military offers a great opportunity for skills development and professionalism. Team work is a major plus because it helps personnel to accomplish so much for meeting every mission.

    However, military life is full of stressful situation. Additionally, since it is so important to accomplish a mission, military personnel are always away from their families. It is very sacrificial but worthwhile.

    Advice to Management

    Love your personnel because they are the most important asset that you have. Without them, your company will not function.
