    Pros

    Variety of possibilities for work experiences and life experiences. Camaraderie is unmatched. You get to do really cool stuff. Education and benefits can't be beat.

    Cons

    It's not always fun and games. The same intensity of good times can have equally if not worse negative times. ie: War is hell. Contractual obligations can pose issues for some who can't handle this type of lifestyle

    Pros

    Great work experience. Will teach you superior work-ethic and is a great place to make friends you will know for life. Great pay. Benefits are consistent. Health care is always there. The pros are strong enough to go for at least 1 term and get out (which is probably what the Navy wants anyways).

    Cons

    Not a good place to work if you are trying to start a family. A single man's career. The Navy doesn't take care of the workers who are valuable and worth keeping - and many times loses them to the civilian job market and gets weaker. The enlisted do all the work and get paid a quarter of what the officers get paid. There was far too much disparity between Chiefs vs. Officers with compensation. Health care is poor - I could go on and on all day long on the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more jobs that are more family friendly and keep your talented workers happy so that you have a higher quality work-force.
