    Current Employee - Program Manager in Kearneysville, WV

    I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worthwhile mission supporting maritime safety and inland port security. Good atmosphere and camaraderie. Overall skilled leaders that look for opportunities to recognize performance.

    Cons

    Budget limitations require shortcuts to meet mission requirements. Budgets are shrinking. Some personnel are dead weight. Some distance and lack of vision between front-line non-military personnel and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay closer to the front-line experts and listen to them. Communicate.

    Pros

    Everything you do is for a greater purpose, either your responding to a crisis or taking the necessary precautions to prevent one. Life is very important and knowing that things you do and decisions you make help protect that life..is more than outstanding, it's indescribable.

    Cons

    You meet alot of different people with different views of life. Everyone has different beliefs and sometimes those different view points cause conflict.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a great work ethic, have a desire to want to learn more and be willing to do more than what's expected of you.
