    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at U.S. Army Reserve part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You get out of it what you put into it. There are a lot of skills that can be developed that translate well into other personal and professional aspects of life. In particular interpersonal communication skills are useful and provided ample opportunity to be developed. It's a great place to build confidence and life long personal and professional relationships.

    Cons

    It's just as easy to end up under toxic leadership as excellent, but the worst thing is that in a situation of having to serve under toxic leadership it can seem impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel, or to get out from under that leadership without leaving the military with an overall bad experience. That said, you're most likely to fall under neutral to slightly good leadership.

    Advice to Management

    This would require volumes.

    I have been working at U.S. Army Reserve part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Teamwork focused Professional work environment My personal and favorite element of military service is putting our Nation before petty politics. If you want to work for an organization that is results-oriented, the Army is the place for you. You can see the effects your hard work has in real-time and you get to learn from the most experienced leaders in the military.

    Cons

    A lot is expected from TPU soldiers, and, without more time than a single weekend, duty becomes sometimes PowerPoint fluffing.

    Advice to Management

    Less PowerPoint, more field training.
