I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The Coast Guard offers excellent health and retirement benefits as well as family support, work life balance, telework, and stability. Coast Guard bases have gyms, cafeterias, exchanges, clinics, ball fields, etc.

Cons

As a federal agency, the Coast Guard is at the whim of the annual federal budget cycle, which can make projects difficult to plan from year to year. Currently facing possible sequestration impact.

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

    Pros

    We are smaller than the other military services, which makes us a tight community. What better job exists than working as a team to save people's lives and protecting the homeland? Because we are so small as a service, we empower our junior people with responsibility much sooner than you might get in other services.

    Cons

    There are very few cons in this job. I guess if there had to be one, it is the fact that the job is 24/7, but that is what we expect. People need help at all hours of the day. We make sure we are ready to help them when they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep empowering your people. We do an excellent job with that.
