It’s unlike any job that you can find in the civilian world. Sometimes there’s long hours and sometimes there’s fun days where the hours fly. You will learn something new occasionally.
Pros
Free lunch, help always on hand
Cons
Short breaks, weather inclinations

Too much bureaucracy. After nearly 24 years I really can't take the red tape anymore so it's time for me to go. The Army is great for a person with little to no experience or skills.
Pros
Great pay for the skills required

The Benifits are good. Leadership quality is inconsistent. I really don’t have much more to say without throwing people under the bus. Take that comment for what it’s worth.
Pros
Benifits
Cons

If you’re patriotic go for it. If you want a sense of purpose go for it. If you don’t mind not having sense go for it. Just not for me, or a lot of people.
Pros
Benefits.
Cons
Army.

I enjoyed being active duty and would return. The work experience is nice and you learn multiple skills to assist in future jobs. Your MOS can also play a roll in future jobs.

The Army values are respectable, but no one ever follows them perfectly. You tend to focus on one and hone on that. If you're passionate about killing people and the Army War tactics then you will make it far, but if you're here for just a job, then stick it out in the civilian sector. Don't get suckered into the sale from the recruiter, not everyone can survive here.
Pros
Free shelter and free meals. Job security.
Cons
High-stress and little sleep.

Wait around all day for something to do. Very little to do in occupation. Didnt like going to the field to bivoac and staying in pup tents in the woods. Usual 8 hour workday goes by slowly. After work there are no other jobs to do, that time is yours. Getting ranks was not a problem to achieve. If you did what you were supposed to be doing at all times.
Pros
Free breakfast lunches and dinners if you wanted.
Cons
Food wasn't always good somedays.

US Army is one of my first ever longest career. And it serves as my stepping stones to achieve everything i have right now. US Army gives you an idea and helps you to realize how to survive in a world where hardships is an actual thing. Army helps me to become a leader and at the same time a good follower.

Everything about the Army I loved. The brotherhood, the camaraderie, and the skills. It’s not just for “patriots”, it’s for anyone who is confused and wants to find their way.
Pros
Camaraderie
