What's the meaning of "not any the worse" and "not any the better" in these following sentences?

1) Are you any the better for joining the civil seevice?

2) She left teaching but isn't any the worse for it.

Hi, Toaha—"Any the better" inquires whether the subject's condition has at all improved on account of joining the civil service, and "not any the worse" means her condition has not worsened at all on account of her leaving teaching.
