Heavy Vehicle Driver/ Convoy Commander Experience/ Plan (Former Employee) says"Army as a whole is getting worse. Theres nothing clear that gets put out for the people to do. Yoxix leadership is the worst part. You only get promoted more or less if your higher chain of command like you or not, its not about how hard you work or your leadership ability even though they say it os based on how you are as a leader and work performance. Could go on about how bad the army is but its a lot to type. Cons: Everything else sucks, especially leadership."

Signal Support Systems Specialist (Current Employee) says"Let me start off by saying these people are diluted in their approach to being even remotely competent at management,growth,career progression, and a plethora of other issues that plague the Army as a whole. Fort Riley has every issue you can imagine but intensified. Leaders do not care about anyone who is not writing their evaluations, promoting them, or giving them a leg up. Hours are long in the army which is understandable, but when you have random hours that consists of different times, its maddening. Leaders care about their reputation and the average joe is an afterthought.Structure almost nonexistent or shattered. Please if at all possible avoid Fort Riley. Cons: Long hours, greed, and toxic leadership"

Cons: Low understanding of economics, history and physics"
