    Focuses on the bottom line

    LS2(SS) (Former Employee)
    Pearl Harbor, HI

    Pros$$$, plenty of time on your feet.... wait what

    ConsDoes not care about family or the people who make up this force too much authority is kept at the top and lower ranks almost get no responsibilities

    Advice to Senior ManagementRead the cons

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If I could only leave a lower rating

    Logistics Specialist (Former Employee)
    Pearl Harbor, HI

    Prosno shortage of b.s. wait what

    Conseverything that could be wrong is

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to make this look like a corporation. Getting kicked out for BCA in less than a month when people who knowingly broke the law (i.e. DUI, Narcotics abuse...etc.) stay in while "processing" and collect a full paycheck. You won't listen to this anyway....

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A leg up on others once you are out but you pay dearly for that opportunity.

    Nuclear Electrician's Mate and Work Center Supervisor (Former Employee)
    Pearl Harbor, HI

    Pros*NUKE ELECTRICIAN ON A FAST ATTACK* Great overall technical training, all the information is easy to access for any kind of system you want to learn. Gives you a good work ethic and ability to absorb pain compared to the common American.

    ConsAbsolutely horrible culture at the top. The Navy has become an organization of who can blame others the quickest or abuse their power the most. ****In reality, the reason the Navy is absolutely horrible is one simple reason: the good people get out, the worthless and others unfit for leadership or capable of existing in todays society stay in and eventually become your leaders.**** In addition to that key point, the Navy is trying to write the dumb out of humans with procedures; it doesnt work. The Navy has decreased its training program difficulty levels to points where personnel who should not succeed - do. This causes accidents and other procedural violations later in life which are then punished. Do us all a favor and instead of risking your submariner's lives, filter those who shouldnt be there out prior to them ever getting the chance to hurt us.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBurn all your procedures, completely fire all of your personnel and start over.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The Navy is a horrible place to work

    Nuclear Electronics Technician (Former Employee)
    Pearl Harbor, HI

    ProsIf you have nothing going for you in life, then join the Navy. The advancement is pretty high, but then you have a bunch of people at the senior level who don't know whats going on, since all the good/smart people get out.

    ConsThe quality of life is horrible. If you like working 17+ hour days, 7 days a week, for a month at a time, being away from home for 6+ months at a time, then this place is for you. The pay is ok, but being nuclear trained the pay in the civilian world is so much better. If you bring up a problem whether reactor safety, hazing incident, etc., you are either are totally ignored or you get punished in some way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to treat people like human beings.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
