Pros

The Naval Nuclear Power Program will give you a hugh variety of training and experience in machinery, electronics, electrical distribution, chemistry, and radiological controls.
You will most likely get to travel the world, or at least the US.
Nuke pay is very good, especially for someone right out of high school. Bonuses can be massive if you want to make it a career.

Cons

Be prepared to work A LOT.
It's the military, expect to be treated according to your rank.

Advice to Management

Treat junior personnel with more respect.

    Pros

    The opportunities in the Navy are limitless. An 18 year old can join just out of high school and can be earning six figures by the age of 30, he can retire just 10 years later. All it takes is dedication and a good work ethic.

    Cons

    The hours at times can be long and the time away from family and friends can be rough. But the benefits outweigh the negatives.

  2. Good for the experience
