    Pros

    If you are not sure what you want to do when you get out of High School, strongly consider the Coast Guard! It offers a great starting salary, retirement after only 20 years still giving you time for a 2nd career. You opportunities to be promoted are limited only to your own personal perseverance. Personal satisfaction saving lives and supporting the Coast Guards Core Values, Honor, Respect and Devotion to Duty.

    Cons

    Frequently you will have to stand duty watches on weekends or evenings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Touring the world on the governments dime. The post 911 g ibill.

    Cons

    Its just a job THAT OWNS YOU!!!... poor salary pay for the hours you work and the time your away, no full retirment, heath care that dosn't want to pay for anything but 500 Mg ibprohen, no advancement, the complet sloths and D-bags you work with, the "racial diversity" the coast guard crams down you throat, and the don't ask dont tell that was repealed and the firey hoops you had to jump through on a daily basis just to do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit micromanaging and trying to justify your job and proove who has the biggest swinging wang, whe understand your our boss you dont have to put us down.
