The U.S. Army provided me a lot of opportunities for job advancement, training, and valuable life skills in management and leadership. The hours could be long and unpredictable, with sometimes a bad work-life balance, but the benefits, experience, and knowledge gained outweighed the negative.
A typical day at work could be planned and organized, and change completely the next day. We always try to plan operations according to schedule, but other personnel or competing requirements can change the time schedule, budget, etc.
benefits, skills acquired
work life balance, long hours
