Pros

The Navy provides deep comraderie and tradition. Gives you a sense of pride and a deep feeling that what you do really does make a difference.

Cons

To have a significant other and belong to any branch of the service will strain your relationship to the nth degree. You must have a strong relationship and strong communication with your wife/husband to be successful with both your career and your relationships.

Advice to Management

less bureacracy.

    Pros

    -Good benefits, close knit communities for those who want them, experience (especially leadership experience) that you won't get anywhere else especially in your 20s, good parties, and job to be proud of and believe in.
    -You are always in the know if you want to be as in the things your friends and relatives don't know you do because your active in the world.
    -Memories, jokes, and stories you can't make up and you could NEVER get anywhere else.
    -Awesome training opportunities.
    -Great network.
    -And of course you can see the world.

    Cons

    -Deployment and missing your family.
    -Pay is great to start for officer of enlisted but tops out quick.
    -Not a lot of room to truly move up pay wise. Limits on how long you must be in a rank before making the next. So no matter how hard you try you can't make it in less time.
    -Political.
    You have to listen to some else who literally controls almost every aspect of your life. For most jobs your boss/bosses may control the normal things but imagine everything being controlled by your front office. It can be very discouraging if your not that kind of person.
    -MAJOR good old boy clubs exist.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and know your people. The more you know about your team the more they can do for you. Don't be afraid to train and promote some one who is hot. Their success will be your success both professionally and privately.

    Pros

    Excellent pay, working conditions, experience, people, and benefits with many opportunities for training, travel, positions anywhere in the world.

    Cons

    There are many challenges and influences due to concerns about conflict of interest, EEO issues, burdens of bureaucracy, and personal security. You have to be willing to roll with it and make it work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making progress toward using the internet. Increase consolidation of seperate web sites to enable the user to be able to find their way through the web of available systems needed to meet work requirements.
