    Pros

    Saving Lives and helping the general public.

    Cons

    Family Special Needs don't get met, the US Coast Guard will actually use the special need to force you into retirement.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your own the way you claim to..

    Pros

    Great benefits, the benefits are worth it alone to sacrifice 4 years. Also a great experience. Once you finish your tour if you don't make a career out of it you will be very proud.

    Cons

    The hours can be very tough depending on what unit you are stationed at. On a land unit you would typically run a Port/Starboard schedule, which has its own pros and cons.

    Advice to Management

    Its totem pole ranking, which pretty much will go by how much responsibility and respect you will recieve. The higher ranked the more respect.
