A variety of experiences
Financial Management Officer (Current Employee), Fort Drum, NYJuly 3, 2014
Pros: good benefits, fair promotion system, built in physical fitness time
Cons: unpredictable schedule, lack of freedom
The position(s) I have held/currently hold in the U.S. Army have given me the opportunity to learn how to operate in several different environments. A typical day at work depends on whether deployed or in the United States. Currently, my day starts at approximately 6:30, where I perform physical training between 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. The regular work – more... day begins at 9:30 a.m., and typically ends at five p.m., depending on the day's mission. Some weekends are lost due to work.

The Army's personnel management requires management to change every two years, so I have seen several types of management, from very laid back to micromanagement. – less

For me - a great starting point
Information Systems Analyst and Operator (Former Employee), Fort Campbell, KYJuly 2, 2014
Pros: reliable paycheck, fantastic benefits, opportunities for job experience
Cons: occasional long work hours, bad management can ruin your career
I spent 7 years in the army gaining valuable experience in Information Technology. It can sometimes be a hard field to get started in. I've received several certifications (Net+, Sec+, CCNA) at absolutely no cost to me. The benefits for yourself and your family can't be beat anywhere. Just about everything (other than plastic surgery and stuff like – more... that) are fully covered under military healthcare.

Depending on who is in charge of you can really determine if you like it or not. Have a bad manager then you just might hate everything about what you do. Have a good one then you're going to love almost every day you go into work. The work/life balance can get a little one-sided. You can spend 10+ hours a day at work depending on what your mission might be. That being said; you also get a lot of days off when there is an opportunity (it averages at least one 3-day weekend a month). And then there's deployments. It's obvious how much that sucks. – less
