    Current Employee - Avionics Technician First Line Supervisor in Jacksonville, FL

    I have been working at US Navy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I feel the pay is competitive in my electronics technician field if you do not consider overtime that is not paid for. The benefits of medical and dental coverage/insurance for my family and I can not be beat in today's corporate America. Tuition Assistance is also available.

    Cons

    Frequent deployments away from family can be tough. Plenty of overtime will be worked, although in the military, there is no "time and a half" pay. My wife calculated my hourly wage, and well, we won't mention it, it's that depressing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deep Six the way advancement to Chief Petty Officers are handled and replace it with a 360 Performance Evaluations along with more weight for the advancement exam. I mean, how can one be a leader when they continue to fail the subordinate development section of the tests?

    I worked at US Navy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great travel, great opportunities, great experiences!

    Cons

    Culture shock! Whiney babies trying to work less for more pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the perform to serve, make pts regional - big navy can't handle the mass of responsibility that comes with filtering the navy out.
