Current Employee - Navy Nuclear Electrician's Mate in Groton, CT

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

Pros

Navy pays you for 1.5 years training
Fantastic jobs when you get out
Many companies require 6 years experience and you get exactly that in Navy
You don't have to stay nuclear or with power generation when you get out. There are many diverse opportunities.

Cons

You have to get out to access the high paying jobs
Job consumes most of your life
You get very pale from the lack of sun, especially on submarines.
Duty rotation on submarines ensures that 1 of every 3 or 4 days you're going to be dead tired

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Two of the three captains I had were fantastic. Liked all of my executive officers, department heads, and divisional leaders. Vast majority of those in leadership positions are very cool as long as you work hard and get your job done.

    I have been working at US Navy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the greatest benefits exist in the United States Uniformed Services. Education benefits, great retirement benefits, a lot of training, ability to travel around the world and the best medical benefits. There are multiple opportunities to see and do things you would not normally get to do in the civilian sector.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of being in the Navy are the multiple deployments away from family, the constant moving and for a lot of people, being on a ship in the middle of the ocean for half a year or more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will not understand why things happen the way they do in the Navy until you get the rank to make the decisions. Just understand there is a reason for everything that happens.

    Pros

    Excellent training, exciting work life and ability to travel

    Some ratings have poor conversion to civilian life after enlistment is up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on journeyman programs for enlisted individuals to convert to civilian work place
