Former Employee - E7 - Navy - Chief Petty Officer

I worked at US Navy full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Everyone has the same opportunities to demonstrate their abilities and excel. Those that want achieve, and those who don't won't.

Cons

Long work hours, and rapidly changing work schedule. The military is a microcosm of the United States, where the bad apples are only amplified and can cause low team morale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Role confusion and ambiguity abounds.

    I have been working at US Navy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent working hours, under-ways can be long and tiring 7-day week adventures. You wear many different hats. You will be a firefighter, technician, custodian, manager, dock worker, soldier, food service assistance, security guard and training team member.

    Cons

    Feels like an extension of high school. Most kids are college age, like to drink party and have had no real world experience. You are trapped in that mentality your whole career if you go enlisted, and officers get brought down to their level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you keep treating us like children, the more childish we will get.
