Im trying to weight up the pros and cons of becoming either an Int Officer or and Int soldier, whilst also trying to find the best fit for me. Im trying to make the most informed decision and any pointers would be appreciated. I recently graduated from a top 10 university with a science degree (not that it actually matters in the real world), and have a state school background. I have a mild interest in leadership, but a stronger interest in military intelligence work. From what I have gleaned from ARRSE int soldiers do pretty much all of the actual intelligence work and therefore more likely to continue working in such fields after they leave the army. Int officers are just management in the corp is this true, or an exaggeration? Due to this I am leaning more towards becoming and int soldier. However out of the few soldiers and officers I know (none of which have been in the corp) they all say becoming a soldier where you have the capability (A levels etc) to become an officer is stupid is this true?...is the int corp different in this respect? I guess Im trying to find out whether the work and training of an int soldier is interesting enough to outweigh the apparent officer perks and leadership opportunity and training.
