It's a tough job but a great pension. Requires incredibly great physical shape.

Overall, I have found the Army to be merit-based in its treatment of women -- and overall, have done fairly well. However, certain leaders, both GO and SES, do see women differently and may, for example, see less career potential for a pregnant civilian woman or new civilian mother. Stand up for yourself and make it clear to your leadership that you want to have a career, not just a job. NOTE: The Army stands out a very positive way in its Childcare Benefits. The Army subsidy available in some regions via NACCRA pays up to $900/month for childcare if you can't get your child into a DoD facility. Navy and AF are about 50% of that.
It's the Army...Physical fitness and carrying your own weight with tasks matter the most. Every unit is different, so if you don't like one job, wait a year or so and you'll have either a new position or a new boss.
