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 10 years)

    Pros

    Serving my country, travel, not working for the all mighty dollar (although always trying to save some or do more with less).
    Been a fantastic experience, one I've enjoyed for over 20 years but it's not for everyone and you need to look at your own thoughts prior to joining. This said it also a great place to start a career which give you a very direct grounding in multi-tasking, where time, funding, resources and information are amoung your constraints. I would do it again...

    Cons

    Many changes are coming with the reduction in DoD budgets which will make support the force more difficult over the next few years. As with any job, sometimes it's who you know and not what you know.
