"Serving your country is wonderful, and there are great benefits and programs to take care of your family. Many bosses are understanding of family issues, but this comes at a cost. When you are called to serve, you must leave your family, sometimes for 12-15 months at a time, and live in harm's way. Army service is wonderful when you are younger, but as your priorities change it may not be the best fit for you and your family. "

"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."

"I took maternity leave using only existing accumulated Annual and Sick leave. There is no paid parental leave for government employees, so you are only officially allowed to use what you have already accumulated and/or FMLA."

"It's. The Army. Where men rule the roost and call the shots. I had to pump in bathroom stalls, used locker rooms, anywhere I could find. There is no opportunity for a more flexible situation, which, I understand because it's the military. But I think a happy medium can be reached so that the military can retain more wonderfully strong women to climb up their ladders and become a better heard voice."

"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."
