    Pros

    The training and leadership that you get in the Navy is second to none. You have responsibility and accountability from day 1 and you are leading right from the start also. As you progess in experience and qualifications you are trusted with more responsibility. As a 24 year old I was responsible for the daily operation/maintenance on a mulitibillion dollar submarine and a mulitmillion dollar nuclear reactor. As the SDO/EDO you are making signification decisions affecting the schedule and operations of the submarine. The experience that you get from this level of responsibility at a young age is something your counterparts in the civilian world will not get to experience until much later in their careers.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is difficult. You are in the military and are expected to be there whenever required. This does not fit well with growing a family and the responsibility you have to your family. I am not talking about deployments (even though those are difficult) I am talking about the time you are in port. Even then your home life is limited. If you are single or married with a working spouse and no kids then it may not be as big of a deal.
