    I worked at Indian Army

    Pros

    A wonderful way of life due to comeradeship, trust and nature of sacrifices made for each whether officer or Jawan, they both will not leave their dead, leave aside injured behind. Am retired, but given another life, I will go back again to Army, Infantry, my parent Arm at that. It is not the pay & perks, which in any case are not commensurate with the adversity and risk, are just frugal, but it is for a life well...

    Cons

    The life expectancy is less due to hazards, danger, degree of difficulty, physical & mental stress, uncertainty of what lies ahead and conditions inside the country too are not favorable. The politicians & bureaucrats have no clue about the living conditions of Armed Forces and they do not listen to the Army Top Brass, unlike other countries say America where half of their presidents were veterans. Similarly the...

    Advice to Management

    No one listens to Army brass! To Indian Govt, Pl do not appoint any one other than ex Defence Office as the Defence Minister and Defence Secretary? The Deputy Commissioners, Police Chiefs of the districts & judiciary be given clear instructions to decide the cases exactly on merits. The relatives try and usurp their property. They join Army when they are very yoing, stay away from home, are not privy to...

    I worked at Indian Army full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Best organisation, fair, teaches you best of unselfish values, Ensures you stay healthy, your children learn best of values, you and your family stops being a typical Indian the form of being a Punjabi or Madrasi or whatever and you having lived all over India, develop an Indian personality, rather a world class personality. Comeradeship is the best. In a nut shell, you stand a class apart. Having served in the Infantry,...

    Cons

    It is challenging indeed, pay is average & your lives are frugal, postings are at such places, (half the time non family stations )you cannot as a civilian, even imagine. It is equally challengng for the family. Postings every two/three years takes a toll on children's studies. My daughter did her 12 classes from 11 schools and son two schools less as by that time I had sought premature retirement and settled down in...

    Advice to Management

    Sympthetically consider request for postings as far as possible. You may not always be right, but be as much fair as you possibly can be. Post officers in MS branch who have maximum field tenures rather than Arm chair officers who have no experience of the ground realities. Improve service conditions of those who are at remote places, particularly Infantry & all those who help them in their close quarter battles/ duties...
