    Pros

    Wonderful lifestyle. The Marshall islands are a great place to live if you scuba dive or like to fish
    It reminded me of living in a college campus...except everyone has money! Food & board are provided
    There are lots of activities to partake in, free movie theatre, arts & crafts like pottery & batik instruction. Many people scuba dive 200 times a year in 82 degree water with 100 foot visability. Diving on WWII wrecks like the Prinz Euegen (Sister ship to the Bismark), wrecked Japaneese zeros, it's simply amazing.

    Cons

    If you're promoted they limit your growth to 10% per year including COLA. They were hiring people in making more money than I was.
    Married people with famlies on the island are treated way better than the singles
    Food is marginal in quality and variation.
    The defense budget has been cut several times, often ending up with cuts in the lifestyle. Pools are closing, fourth of July fireworks cancelled, food budget cut. Talk of reduced work hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair. Stop penny pinching on the workers while lavishing on senior management. Stop changing policies without notice, causing people heartache and money. Treat the singles better. The way the Marshallese are treated should be criminal, but you see to it that it's fine in the compact with the royalty...shame on you.

    lower compensation than other places but provide great flexibility to pursue your goals outside of work.

    Pros

    flexiblity. A great company to work for if you are interested in pursuing an advanced degree and obtain work experience.

    Cons

    compensation is not great and work is not necessarily very challenging. It can be a challenge to look for interesting work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the senior managers are not employed by the same company but they should be. It sends a wrong message when the senior managers refuse to accept the compensation that KRS provides.
