I have been working at US Navy

Pros

Security clearance, diverse peronnel, certification opportunities and trade schooling also. You will have the opportunity to test and use very complex material, that in the end the Navy is intrusting you with hundreds of thousands of dollars, and if you apply enough motivation, you can become a system matter expert in those equipments wich in the long run will give you a good skill set to apply once done with the military.

Cons

You may be called in after working hours to perform a job or duty, chain of command sometimes may be unfair, and contradicting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help your people, give them time off when transitioning from the military so they can prepare to take care of their family for life after the Navy. I've experienced leaders who micro-manage their people, and it only stumps the opportunity to help them grow and flourish as leaders themselves. The Navy is a good place regardless, but as a leader, you're only as good as your people.

    Pros

    The USNR offer a great health care package with competitive pay for just two days at month and two annual training week a year. They also offer further training in medical specialties such as X-Ray and Bio-Med Technician that could be use in the civilian sector. They are other oportunities for short term jobs as well. Really satisfy with my experience in the USNR and I been able to travel for work to really interesting places.

    Cons

    Work is only in the assign weekend, could impact family life at times. The annual training is not entirely in your schedule and flexibility is needed to meet this requirement. I also will like to mention that the annual training is mandatory although waivers are allow for special reason. And the number one con is that there is a possibility of deployment to dangerous places since you are part of the USN.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to offer school since it those help the members progress foward in the USNR career and civilian life. Also an attend to be more flexible in the monthly training time could help other people continue to server and joint the reserve. Although they are already doing a great job.

    Pros

    Good benefits, time off when needed, holidays, sense of accomplishment

    Cons

    Hours can be short or very long, deployments, advancement is ok for some jobs but is bad for others, a lot of sucking up to higher ups to get better evaluations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to see the work your junior sailors are doing, listen more
