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.

The people you will meet are amazing & the leadership will eaither make or break your army experience. It is an amazing feeling to be part of a team.

Good experience

Good experience for guys out of high school, I learned a lot from time overseas and back in the states. Some guys love it and some just use it as a stepping stone.

Challenging, Rewarding, and Transformative

Working as an officer in the army has been a challenging yet incredibly rewarding experience. The leadership skills honed, the sense of duty instilled, and the camaraderie forged are unparalleled. However, the demanding nature of the role requires adaptability, resilience, and a deep commitment to service. Overall, it's a unique professional journey that shapes character and offers opportunities for personal and professional growth.

It’s a good stepping stone.

If you don’t have a good direction in life join! If you have a good direction in life DON’T join. Pay is rough, time away, poor leadership.Pros Teaches discipline makes you enter a mentally strong person.

Was a good experience

Enjoyed it overall. Some good times and bad. Wouldn’t do it again but glad I did it. For a kid just off the street was the best option available. So there you go

Potential for extreme growth but tough work-life balance

Job requires a lot of commitment and effort regarding time dedicated to the mission and the soldiers. Experience can be very rewarding depending on how much you put into the position. Overall job is tough due to heavy operational output but rewards the bold and committed.

Productive and fun workplace

It was great, great leadership all around good guys. Long hours but not too bad with the guys you’re working with. Low paying salary, is really the only negative part

Law enforcement is taken serious. Good training and experience to obtain. Upper management makes things difficult for patrol level. Good calls for service.

Great place

Grateful for the opportunity to work in such a nice place. Managers are such a nice lady, great career progression. Pay is not good for feeding large family

great learning opportunity

Learning about satellite communications and providing an opportunity to see how networks work is good. The critical thing is to use the tuition assistance to learn more about the the field. But it does start to stagnate after a while with slow promotions based on a system that promotes various things, including physical fitness and education.

Very productive

Always moving and learning new things but it pays off if you care and really put forth the work and effort. Loved being able to travel and obtain new skills to transition to civilian jobs

Secure but can be soul crushing

A great place if stability is your only priority. If you desire growth and interesting work, I would strongly consider looking elsewhere. I recommend be able to make peace with boring work and constant interpersonal challenges.

Long hours no time for family

ITS A HIT OR MISS DEPENDING ON UNIT TO BE HONEST. BUT if you have the right people around you it can be manageable, a lot of people do become burnt out and decide to leave service due to the high tempo work and army stuff.

Great camaraderie

Depending on your occupation specialty, it’s a great stepping stone to a secure career within the Army or as a civilian almost any where, be it within the states or abroad.
