I worked at US Army full-time for 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.

    I worked at US Army full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I learned a lot about how human resources actually work within an organization. There was always a chance to cross-train and learn other things. Also, you get to change your scenery every couple years, which isn't so bad. I loved working with a multitude of people in international and domestic settings.

    Cons

    Leaving people you grow close with, having to change assignments that may be fulfilling to do something less satisfying, always being at the "need of the Army", and not always getting promoted in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote on work ethic and merit.
