Eh
It is the military so the job is the job, overall the military is not a bad place to be in but for some, myself included, it is not the end all be all.

Biggest waste of 21 years of my life, senior leadership do not care about their Soldiers only themselves and advancing their career. Join long enough to get college money then run for your life.

Experience really depends on so many different factors that are mostly out of one's control. MOS, duty station and command team are all going to influence your experience. When these are all great, life is good and easy. When one or more are bad, you are out as fast as you can.

reat place to work. They treat employees well with time off and fun events. If you can get on full time, that is the perfect way to work there. Contractors are treated as low class citizens but employees are treated as individuals not workers

By joining you'll be exposed to other cultures outside and inside the US. Some people are content with minimal effort, but by working studiously you will often be given opportunity to perform at a higher level with more responsibility. A quote I heard while I was in is "85% will be fine with doing their job and going home, 10% will seek out and excel in all they do, and 5% are the ones that will cause you the most problems." I have seen that effect in action, and believe the biggest contribution to retention is how you view the people in the organization. Additionally, you may be stationed overseas and exposed to new cultures.
