"I have worked for the Headquarters, Department of the Army, in some capacity for 12+ years. Generally I have had a fantastic experience. Hard work and talent are rewarded. The Federal government lags behind industry in family friendly benefits and initiatives, like paid family leave and part time career positions. Interestingly, however, the Army does offer civilians the same child care subsidy for off-post care that it offers to military - this has saved us 50% off local economy rates for high quality childcare in the DC Metro area."

"Great opportunity for career advancement, you need to have thick skin though because some men will think less of you simply for being a woman. "

"Equal pay due to it being a government job. You do have to work harder then men to prove yourself. There are still issues with explicit and implicit bias, but things are getting better. It’s a large organization so change is slow. "

"It is a privilege to serve your country, but you need to have the courage to determine when/if the demands of the job are right for you and your desired lifestyle. "

"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 a tough job but a great pension. Requires incredibly great physical shape. "
"Be aware of your surroundings. Be amazing at P.T."
"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."
