I worked at US Coast Guard full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great benefits, much is provided for you beyond a normal job, including educational benefits.

Cons

Crazy hours, very mechanistic, centralized organization with little freedoms. Can spend months at sea, depending on your billet. Sometimes very hard work.
