INDIAN ARMY WAS THE BEST CHOICE OF BRITISHERS DURING COLONIAL TIMES. THE FOURTH STRONGEST ARMY DUE TO EVER STRONG MEN, ENCOMPASSES ONE OF THE WORLD'S WELL RENOWNED REGIMENTS. THE GLORIOUS HISTORY OF INDIAN ARMY IS A PROOF OF IT'S ACHIEVEMENTS. UNLIKE US ARMY , BRITISH ARMY ETC. HERE THE OFFICER'S LEAD FROM THE FRONT SETTING PERSONAL EXAMPLES AND UPHOLDING THE TRADITIONS OF VARIOUS REGIMENTS.PRESTIGIOUS ACADEMIES LIKE NDA, KADAKHVASLA, IMA, DEHRADUN AND OTA, CHENNAI ARE RANKED IN SINGLE DIGIT NUMBERS IN THE WORLD FOR TOUGHNESS OF TRAINING AND OFFERS BEST PLATFORM TO INCULCATE GOOD DISCIPLINE, MANNERS AND EXTRA ORDINARY CONFIDENCE APART FROM SPORTS AND OTHER ADVENTUROUS ACTIVITIES. ARMY HAD PRODUCED EXCELLENT SPORTSMEN OVER THE YEARS WHO HAD WON MEDALS IN OLYMPIC GAMES.WONDERFUL PLATFORM FOR DEVELOPING SKILLS LIKE COMMAND AND CONTROL, ADMINISTRATIVE THAT TOO IN HIGHLY INHOSPITABLE, VOLATILE AND LEAST DEVELOPED AREAS, OPERATIONAL AND QUICK DECISION MAKING SKILLS.

Dislikes

FEW DISADVANTAGES ARE LIMITED PROMOTION PROSPECTS DUE TO NARROW HIERARCHY UNLIKE IN IPS AND IAS. EARLY RETIREMENT TO KEEP ARMY YOUNG ESPECIALLY IN CASE OF SHORT SERVICE OFFICER WHEREIN HE RETIRES AT AGE 35 WITH NO PENSION LEAVES HIM WITH LIMITED SCOPE TO FIND A JOB IN CIVIL WITH EQUIVALENT POSITION AND PAY. MAXIMUM ISOLATION FROM FAMILY. PAY PACKAGE NOT COMMENSURATE TO HARDSHIPS ENDURED.

Work

SOLE IN CHARGE OF MILITARY OPERATIONS IN ASSIGNED AREAS TO GUARD THE AREA AGAINST ENEMY OCCUPATION OR TERRORIST INCURSION, ADMINISTRATION OF MY COMPANY STRENGTH 125 PERSONNEL WHICH INCLUDE COMMAND, TRAINING, WELFARE, CUSTODIAN OF VARIOUS ASSETS, GAMES.

An excellent organization. Whatever I have achieved today is given to me by the organization. Each and every one here are concerned about each other and work together to achieve a common goal in which we seldom fail.Superb team spirit and support to one another makes this organization unique. Salary is very good. There are many other facilities and benefits apart from salary. Living standard is very good. Environment on and off duty is excellent.100 percent job security. High standard of training in latest indigenous and foreign communication equipments and technology. Gets a lot of opportunities to interact with high profile Indian and foreign engineers and learn more. Lots of travelling opportunities. High career growth. Many things are learnt here including lifestyle and etiquettes. Gets ample time to enhance yourself after work time. Honesty, truthfulness and Loyalty is a must here if you wish to lead a dignified life here.

Dislikes

Sometimes I had to establish my communication entity at short time in very unfavourable weather conditions. I had to communicate with many Officers and JCOs regarding space availability, available resources and also laise with them for food and accommodation of my men.We had to work day and night with little rest.Being a senior I was under pressure, but with positive attitude and support from my colleagues and seniors even I couldn't believe how I did it.

Work

It is challenging , sometimes it is hectic but overall a respectable job. We get to learn many new things here one after the other. Most important you get credits for your work.

One of the officer who had lost both the eyes in a mine blast replied to a media reporter on his query that what would you like to become in next birth,"I would like to join Indian Army to complete balance of the tasks which I have not been able to do it now.That is the kind of training & motivation /culture we have in the Army.If one wants to lead life of an officer (real officery)there can not be better organisation. Indian Army officers are the real leaders who lead from the front.Today if our country is united we all per I lot to the sacrifice of Indian Army officers &other personnel who lay their life willingly to provide us safety&comfort.As regards to salary &other benefits it is one of the best in Group A services.(if other unauthorised means are not taken in to account).Life is full of challenges, frequent postings but one start enjoying it.

Dislikes

Due to pyramidical structure promotion are not as good as other services ie IAS/IPS,it is high time Army changes its pyramidical structure and widen it.My article "Promotional Reforms in the Army "published in Hitvaad gives more details about it.But the kind of Izzat&respect an army officer gets,even the top brass of other services envy it.

Feel great being served with the best ,apolitical systematically organised , true committed to it's traditions & core values, Represents true secularism where all the religions can worship ,live and eat under same roof . Made me jack of all trades that is to say, fire from pistol to tank gun , handle explosives, demand, procure and distribution of rations, stores ,equipment , repairs and maintenance of all stores including vehicles. Operating on the borders on face of enemy , counter terrorist operations and manage men under such crucial moments where death is awaiting in front of you. Got opportunity to operate in DRC in Africa in UN Peace Keeping Mission and see closely work of other armies . Learnt security & disaster management to handle adverse situations .Functioned as a proscecutor to administer discipline in number of cases. Travelled widely within the country . Last but not the least , earned love and respect of all subordinates and superiors .

Indian Army provides a wholesome and well rounded experience towards career fulfillment. The training and upskilling opportunities are ensured for all employees at different milestones throughout their career. Social and cultural activities ensure a good work - life balance. Adequate facilities for families exists at cantonments in terms of schools, sports infrastructure, shopping and medical support. Recreational activities and long leave facilities provide a welcome break from routine to pursue own interests meaningfully. Overall a great career option for someone who has a passion for outdoors and sports.

Dislikes

A steep pyramidal hierarchical structure combined with a need to maintain a younger leadership profile restricts the opportunities for growth and career advancement beyond middle level.

Work

A challenging work culture that provides opportunity for change every 2 - 3 years. The regular changes in role and job content widens the horizon as also prepare the soldiers better towards change management in a dynamic modern battlefield.

First of all, it's not working in Army, Army is way of life, if you are joining it to work than it's not right place for you, it had great and awesome culture, but with time it is deteriorating, bonding with brother officers bonding with men you command can't be compared.

Dislikes

With change in civil society, Indian army too is changing, now there is limited comradeship, now it's really a working place, day by day army is loosing it's value and tradition, indulgence of media interference of political wishes, now as officer if you want to join it then it's not a right place,
Life is full of tension, no family life,
With shortage of army officers there is too much work pressure,
Self generated works are there, it's 24x7 work with lot of pressure, mental tension,.

Work

It's 24x7 job, with mental tension, life is full of worthless engagements, no family life, hectic is too soft word to use ..

As per rating above,the overall the life is good and balanced. Now the family life is also good with efforts to satisfy all. The spirit is high and comradery is good. Since life is tough,one learns to adjust to what life gives and becomes philosophical. That is important for all at end of the day.

Dislikes

Nothing. One evaluates himself,then there is no problem. Promotion and career are part of life, one rises others wait and remaining ones stay constant.It is okay for some and not for others. Well again a good life,as one compares after retirement. On other side other side of fence is always green and good.

Work

Overall excellent opportunity as one joins with lots of hope, excitement, and that too volunteering knowing well life is tough and not easy. Hence, majority enjoy nature of job and very few dislike it.

I loved the work I did at my office. Army provides you job security and good salary to the person with low academics. Army deals with all in the same manner whether qualified or guys passing their time. It doesn't matter.

Dislikes

"Ram Rajya" which I didn't like about the Army. Person who is performing his duties with lot of dedication and zeal, has to be suffered in Army. He will not get leave on time, will heard something strange for mistakes which he hasn't committed and has to work under less qualified persons. In my opinion, Army life is not like showing in movies. A soldier has to adjust at every stage and hence mastered in adjustability.

Work

Couldn't satisfy the seniors even worked day and night due to not listening against me for no fault of mine. I could satisfy them only with one answer I. E. Yes sir

Serving in Army is not a job, but a pride. I haven't consider it as a job, but service to motherland. Indian Army believe in team work. It's powerful, because of it's team spirit. All are disciplined and won't compete for each other, but complete each other. Work environment is conducive for all. Because of PAN India scope of work, all have the exposure to work in extreme climatic and socio-economic conditions. Great family life as Indian Army take great care of the families of it's soldier equally as like the soldiers themselves..

Dislikes

Working in Army is a pride... It build team spirit, discipline, winning attitude and toughness in an ordinary person.

Work

Definitely, working in Army is challenging as we do our job in extreme adverse climatic and geographical conditions. But, it inculcated extreme toughness in it's people and to protect the integrity of the nation...
