Pros

Job you can be proud of. Many enlisted ratings (i.e., job types) give skills that will actually be valuable to civilian employers, much more than many college majors. Pay for some senior enlisted and officers can be quite good, especially when additional benefits are considered. Camaraderie makes for great concern for the people you work with relative to civilian jobs. People tend to care for each other better than they do in the civilian world. Job can be very exciting; people will actually want to hear about your experiences.

Cons

Junior enlisted should be paid better for the work they do. (As an officer though, I was quite satisfied with my pay.)

Time away from family.

    Former Employee - Electronics Technician  in  Norfolk, VA
    Former Employee - Electronics Technician in Norfolk, VA

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

    Pros

    Education, rank promotion potential quicker than other branches, plenty of time off (on shore duty), travel, experience things that will last a lifetime that most will never see

    Cons

    Long deployments on ships, crammed living quarters, some of the people that are in charge of you are idiots and you have to learn to deal with them due to higher rank. Staying in becomes very competitive after the first enlistment due to lack of funds
