Pros: good pay and benefits (as an officer), good equipment - best in the world, dedicated administration and fellow workers
Cons: variable work environments, adverse weather conditions occasionally, war atmosphere possible, survival living setting
I trained primarily 2 days per month - usually a weekend with military ceremonies, learning experiences of great variety related to being a Soldier of US Army plus usually two weeks usually in summer months training in area of specialty in my military assignment of caring for our military as well as civilians affected by our missions.
I learned a great – more... deal of the military organization and mission as well as on-going training relating to my MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) which does not have much relationship to my work in the oil industry other than science and math applications of modern evolving technology.
Coworkers are the variety of ranks and work specialties within an organization with a mission to accomplish.
the hardest part is being regularly available perhaps for a long-term mission in a possibly hostile and war environment.
Most enjoyable part is seeing dedication of the United States government, military organization and personnel in carry out the mission - with the health and well-being of the people involved either maintained or enhanced. – less
