    Pros

    Training, opportunity, and people are invaluable. The benefits are great and the environment was comfortable.

    Open jobs available, but many retire and positions open up. Not a ton of growth but there is room.

    I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The mission of saving lives, protecting the marine environment, and securing the ports and waterways of the United States combined with outstanding co-workers and supervisors that emphasize a work-life balance makes the Coast Guard a great workplace. The truly Coast Guard takes care of its people.

    Cons

    Innovation can be restricted due to the hierarchical nature of the military and Congressional requirements on the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The cutter is the Old Guard move on or be surpassed by other agencies.
