If you're employed do you get adequate compensation in the US for the time off work? Here in the UK the maximum allowed is far less than most people would actually earn and if it turns out to be a long trial you could stand to lose a bundle.

On the other hand it's pretty easy to get excused. When my partner was selected we wrote to say that given our commitments any time off work could push us into debt (which was certainly true). She was excused duty with no fuss at all.
