Outstanding opportunity to obtain a plethora of leadership-building experiences ... worldwide!

Senior Officer (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

ProsIn what service can you fly aircraft, drive ships, jump out of (perfectly good) airplanes, dive to the depths of sea, and serve in special forces considered the best of the best? Only the U.S. Navy.

ConsDeployments (and the associated separation from family) continue to get longer and longer. It's time to lengthen tours, shorten deployments, and reduce the number of moves in a 20-year career.

Advice to Senior ManagementFlag Officers have an *almost* across-the-board tendency to be detached from the work lives of their subordinates. They forget the amount of work required to provide them with the desired (but not always necessary) level of support. Get out of your offices and among the Officers and Enlisted whom you lead and talk to them. Request frank assessments of current working conditions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
