Life changing experience.

Second Class Petty Officer (Former Employee) New Orleans, LA

ProsThe U.S. Coast Guard like any branch of service is an incredibly challenging, but rewarding experience. If you are willing to sacrifice a lot of your personal life than this is a great career choice because what you gain in return is valuable skills, and character traits that will help you throughout your life. Plus you can't beat all the military benefits.

ConsThe biggest downside like any branch of service is the time away from family.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet the example to follow.
