    Great Training, Amazing Work and Paid Travel

    E5 - Navy - Petty Officer Second Class (Former Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    ProsReally good training and of course benefits. The pay was more than fair for the experience needed to do the work.

    ConsSometimes the hours could get a little out of hand with work being completed but supervisors insisting that more needed to be done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave set goals as to what needs to be accomplished and once you achieve them review and change if needed, but if results are satisfactory, don't keep working on that project.

    Great Start

    Navigation Electronics Technician (Former Employee)
    Pearl Harbor, HI

    ProsThis helped me be a better person, through learning and experiences. The Navy really teaches you to deal with stuff that might not be "every day"...

    ConsIt needs some stress management at the begining.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up.

    Amazing experience no matter how many years you invest.

    Nuclear Electricians Mate Submariner (Current Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    ProsThe opportunities are endless, your coworkers become family @ smaller commands, the pride you feel for serving your Country is priceless, the skills you develop through schools and on the job training will last you a lifetime and would break the bank if you paid out of pocket.

    ConsDifficult on family life in some ways.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    You get what you put in

    Cryptologic Technician Maintenance (Former Employee)
    Schofield Barracks, HI

    ProsI learned many things while in the Navy. I loved doing my job (CTM) but I did not like the military aspects. But In the end I am really glad I joined. I am much more disciplined, hard working, and punctual. Now I am using the Post 9/11 GI Bill and I couldn't be happier. Thanks Navy.

    ConsEveryone gets punished if someone messes up. Do not get a DUI, your life will be ruined. Standing watch sucks, duty section sucks, a lot of the people suck. A lot of stupid people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to be receptive to your peers and don't screw anyone over for a promotion.

    They give you what you need, not what you want

    Petty Officer Second Class (Former Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    Prosbenefits are the pro, healthcare, housing, resources beyond anything in the civilian side for anything you would need at the Fleet and family service center. It is a big family, everyone looks out for you. opportunity is high.

    Consdeployments, time away from family, the way the commands own you, being called in on off days is a regular occurrence.

    Hard Work, Rewarding

    Officer (Current Employee)
    Honolulu, HI

    ProsRewarding and fulfilling. Great people to work with. I think most people know what they're getting into, so it shouldn't come as a surprise. That said, it can be incredibly rewarding.

    ConsTough environment, time away from home. There are many times when the work is tedious and mundane, but that's to be expected. Promotion/advancement is highly scripted and based on time in, not performance (you aren't going to jump ahead if you are the top performer, just stand a better chance of promotion to the next rank).

    Great Job, Better life

    Naval Officer (Current Employee)
    Pearl Harbor, HI

    ProsThe people you meet are outstanding and the experience you get from both work and travel cannot be gained from any other job in the world.

    ConsBeing away from family was the hardest part of the job. But this is part of the self sacrifice that is common for those in an all volunteer force.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlways balance life and work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great management and leadership experience.

    Lieutenant - Officer (Current Employee)
    Pearl Harbor, HI

    ProsImmediate management and leadership experience that you wouldn't find anywhere else. Great professional training programs. Good stepping stone to almost any career afterwards.

    ConsLong hours, lots of underway time, deployments away from friends and family are very tough. Stress is very high. However, this is all offset by the pros.
