    Pros

    Health benefits are great, but can become quickly shadowed by the inability to move up the chain in some rates. They are very family friendly though.

    Cons

    Management is poor. It is very political. Very few people seem to have the backbone to say what they know is right. Once you get to the Chief level there are no clear expectations (basically you can do nothing and get by just fine with that).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a way to move people up the chain rather then by using a poor testing and perf eval. The test is ok, but the perf eval system is very poor. Everyone should have to work equal. Most places you get promoted and you have to work harder, but in the Coast Guard it is a little backwards.
