    I have been working at US Navy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's nice to have job security, and the benefits package is pretty substantial. Additionally, you get to work with a variety of people, live in a variety of places (I moved 4 times in 6 years), visit ports around the world. At a very young age you have the opportunity to do a significant job and get a lot more leadership opportunities than most people of a similar age.

    Cons

    There is not much balance between work and family -- and depending on your individual command, sometimes it feels like the higher leadership forgets that they have *people* working for them. I've physically shared living space with my spouse for only 1 of my 6 years in service (we've been together the whole time). The institution is so large that many people are not held accountable for doing their share of the work -- hard workers are quickly disillusioned. Promotions and the best work reviews are rarely given to the people that most-deserve them; the bureaucracy is crippling.
