Stressful

Great for single people who like having no life outside the military. Leadership varies from company to company so pray your CO is chill. There is opportunity to advance if you are good at PT.

Pros

Long lunch breaks

Cons

No life

Great for seeing different cultures and values

Working for the Army is a great place to learn about different cultures and values because of the travel and diversity.You’ll deal with a lot if bureaucratic red tape and unnecessary junk, but it’s finite, and at the end if you’re mindful of the experience value, you’ll come out more worldly and possibly be more mature and ready to take advantage of your earned education opportunities.

Pros

Worldly experience, education benefits

Cons

away from family, bureaucracy, egos of underachievers

Great benifits but the hours are horrible.

the balance between job and home life is the only drawback. That and possible death. they put the job first and if you have kids, its probably not the career for you.

Pros

Free lunch

Cons

getting shot at

its always field time and rotation

Loved being in the Army until I got to Fort Irwin where everyone seems depressed due to isolation and volume of work and leadership that doesnt recognized their soldiers. Did I mention that if youre high speed youre going to end up doing all the work while the shitbags get away with it with no repurcussion.

Pros

benefits

Cons

Fort Irwin as a mechanic doesnt get any love

Army is slowly going down the drain.

Do you like getting injured? Do you like 12 hour days and constantly being told you're a peice of trash, regardless of being a darn good soldier? Well have I got the opportunity for you!As long as you drink the kool-aid, run fast, and shoot good you will go far in the Army! Regardles of leadership style, these are the only things that matter to your chain. Because afterall, camaraderie is gone in the Army, and you are just a number to your CO and 1SG.

Pros

Free certifications like SEC+ A+ Fiber etc if you can do the training.

Cons

Nothing is free even if they say it is, you pay for it some how, toxic leadership across the bvoard, good NCOs are a rare thing, and none are ever willingn to go to bat for you even if you're an S tier soldier.

Great leadership experience, but don't expect a 9-5 work/life balance

Gained a lot of experience with leadership and managing different types of people. Never intended to make it a career so it was good for what it was. Experienced things that most will never have the opportunity to. For some, if you take advantage of all the resources, experience, and benefits at your disposal, you could have a rewarding career/experience and even set yourself up for a great life outside of the military. However, it's a serious commitment and not for everyone. So think very hard before you sign that dotted line and pledge yourself to a life of service.

Pros

camaraderie, mission driven, education benefits, health benefits, leadership experience

Cons

some bad leaders, incompetence, micro-managing, slow-moving

Altered the course of my life

To anyone on the fence regarding joining the Army (or military, in general) - DO IT! Whether it's for a short enlistment or a career, do it. Your life should be changed for the better. If it isn't, the life experiences themselves will make it worth it.

Pros

mission-oriented, camaraderie, esprit de corps, emphasis on holistic fitness

Cons

work-life balance gets out of whack, challenging for families

Life long friendships

I served for 8 and half years. I gain so much knowledge and was able to travel to different countries. I appreciate everything the Army offered and the benefits extend as you transition to being a veteran. Because of the Army, I was able to buy my first home at 30, get paid for going to school and secure a government job that I have been at for over five years now. I still talk to a lot of the people I served with. The only negative that I have is that it is hard when you are a single parent. Sometimes they expect for you to forget you have a child. I am not saying that it is impossible, because I did it, but it is difficult. This was part of the reason I got out.

Pros

benefits, job security, etc

Cons

single parents are not supported as much (depending on leadership), multiple deployments (depending on MOS)

Poor Leadership isn’t excusable and I do not think it was worth it.

My honest opinion of this is that I feel like I have necessarily wasted the last four years of my life to pursue debt-free college. I have never in my life been surrounded by such amazing individuals, while also being surrounded by people who I can’t even believe graduated high school. The problem with the inept individuals that I speak of tend to be the most senior leadership you will come to know. I have learned an incredible amount and have received some of the best training that could be given, but it came at the price of being in constant state of pain and depression. I would not recommend this, but I do think that those who have served and are still serving should be gratified by the public for their valor. If you are thinking about joining the military straight after high school please experience at least one year of being an adult first. It morphs your perspective on a lot of the idiocy that can come from higher in your command and allows you to realize that there is much better options than this. College is not for everyone and that’s cool, but seek out at least some other type of profession before trying out this one. You will either come to love your experience or regret it, and I think it’s very clear what I have done.

Pros

30 days of paid time off per year, free healthcare, regular exercise, free 4 years of college

Cons

Incredibly long, futile hours, Look up what a connex is, Look up what TRADOC is (your recruiter won’t mention it), Health and Welfare inspections, Hearing Loss, Poor Leadership, poor living conditions, toxic work environment

Travel is great…

The traveling is awesome, the issue lies with those in charge. Senior can seem a little over zealous sometimes. But it is something that is manageable due the the outstanding benefits and training.
