I worked at US Army full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The Army has a very competitive salary, and educational benefits. The Army pays for all training and supplies all necessary equipment to perform all assigned tasks.

Cons

The Army has long work hours depending on your individual job or specialty. Also you may be required to leave you family for long extended periods of time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The only advise I can give to management is to listen to your subordinates suggestions and ideas. They are the ones that actually do the job and have first hand knowledge on how to make things better.

    Pros

    There is a sense of stability.
    There is a structure to the daily work day, can be long at times, but structure overall.
    Most, whether enjoyable or not, get the opportunity of experiencing new places and new training.
    Pay in my opinion is good with satisfactory benefits.
    Satisfaction in knowing that for the most part you are accomplishing something beneficial to the nation.

    Cons

    Long periods of time away from home and family. From Days to Months to Years in some cases.
    Get stationed in locations where you do not want to be.
    There are times when work gets too repetitive, but part of the job.
