Pros

The Navy provided me with great on the job training and taught me how to succeed in any environment.

The hours could be highly demanding in excess of 120hr/week There were also people of very low skill level still retained by the Navy because of manning requirements.

    I worked at US Navy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Steady pay, changing jobs, all and all a great system to work for. The main reason to join the service is not to get rich, but to serve others.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty weak on the enlisted side of the house, who are the burden of most of the work. While they do not get the recognition they deserve, they are the best in the world at getting a job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example, not by words. If you choose to make a schedule difficult, be in that schedule with the men. Do not burden your force unnecesarily.
