I worked at US Coast Guard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great missions. SAR is predominant as well as vessel safety, port security, aids to navigation, and drug interdiction.

Cons

Need more deployments. Deployments are where we make our money in drug interdiction and vessel boardings. Ensuring the safety of our coast lines and ports is essential.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep to the fundamental missions that keep the organization viable.
