Current Employee - Nuclear Submarine Officer in Arlington, VA
Current Employee - Nuclear Submarine Officer in Arlington, VA

I have been working at US Navy full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Worldwide job assignments; you move every 3-5 years, around the United States and even overseas. You work with exceptional people, serve your country, and earn a comfortable living while doing it.

Cons

Hours can be longer than in a private sector job and pay is salaried so there's no overtime. Moving every 3-5 years can add stress to a marriage and family life; moving is a pro though, it's just something that can add stress to your family life and needs to be managed. It won't be for everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recommend that mentorship be more stressed and applied, even to senior military members that are transitioning from service to the private sector.
