Big changes are coming...women are now allowed in combat arms specialties. There is no glass ceiling for women and no pay inequality, but there can be harassment in the workplace.
Overall Compensation for your work
Pay is good, but depending on the assignment and duty station, may not seem like its worth the pain.
Work-life balance is okay to horrible. 24-hour duty, field exercises, and deployments are major stressors. On the other hand, you get 4-day holidays on most Federal holidays and you get 30-days of paid vacation per year.
