68W Health Care Specialist (Current Employee), Fort Bragg, NC – August 4, 2015
Pros: Comprehensive benefits
Cons: Poor organization and lack of vision
This is an organization which is driven by irrational, reactionary decision making with a highly sedentary, well-entrenched 'good ol boy' leadership. The Army will challenge you, but not in ways you would expect. This is not a good thing. Ideal for individuals with no previous work experience, marketable skills or a desire to do anything beyond spending a long day of water-cooler-talk.
Operations Officer (Former Employee), Kansas City, MO – August 4, 2015
Pros: Cutting edge
Cons: Office politics
The day began with early morning physical training. I would then get showered and head for the office. Checking/responding to emails, meetings, reviewing timelines, directing personnel, working assigned tasks, starting and finishing necessary tasks. Timeliness was huge in all of the operations environment.
Special Forces Senior Instructor (Current Employee), Fort Bragg, NC – August 4, 2015
Pros: Serving my country was the greatest accomplish I have made so far.
Cons: Being away from my family
I recommend that everyone should serve our country, it builds character and a work ethic that is unmatched. I have learned what it means to operate in a team environment. A good leader does not only know how to lead but also knows how to follow too. I also learned how to never give up and to always have a positive attitude. I am closer to my teammates than I am to some of my family members.
Tank Armor Crewman - 19K, Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Knox, KY – August 4, 2015
My experience taught be discipline and humility. You get to meet a lot of interesting people and travel the world. Depending on your job and the war status of the country, you can go without seeing your family for an extended period of time.

Pros: Good benefits
Cons: leave love ones
I have serve in the Army for 20+ years as a 15R Attack Helicopter repairer men. work was easy great people to work with and for sure plenty of work. Management is good but sometime new supervisor have there way to run business so you have to be very flexible the hardest part is leaving your family for long deployments but we do get paid extra. best part of my job is fixing on a broken aircraft and getting it back to flying status and watch it fly away. a job well done
Lab Technician (Former Employee), Ft. Benning, Georgia – August 4, 2015
Pros: I enjoyed working with my fellow soldiers
Cons: Long work hours, didn't see my kids much.
I would wake up around 4 a.m. and get dressed for p.t., or physical training. After p.t., I would get ready and report to my sergeant's office, where I would receive instructions on what to do for the day or even the week. My fellow soldiers and myself would get on the task immediately, not leaving work until around 6 p.m.

Army Rank E4 Specialist (Former Employee), Ft. Eustis, Va – August 4, 2015
Pros: Lots of different eposure
Cons: Had no support
My time in the military was up and down. The military was more like a big summer camp for adults. There is not the discipline like I thought. I had no support in the company I was in, but I was permitted to re-station I would probably still be in.
