I worked at US Navy full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great training, Good promotion up to the level of E-5. See the world while gaining a valuable skill set.

Cons

Long hours on sea duty, required to stand watches additional to your primary duties. Not the job for someone who wants to be home every night. As with any job there will be superiors you will disagree with but in general most people in leadership positions are decent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If there is no work to be done in port let your people be with their families, there will be plenty of time to fuss over the petty things out to sea.

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

    Pros

    Good pay & great benifits, it's paid me to see the world and explore new and different cultures, you're well trained to perform your job and expected to execute it the highest standard, you're surrounded by similar thinking professionals and develop a bond that transcends "normal" civilian friendships

    Cons

    Long hours, often times dangerous work, there's little privacy on a ship and less personal space, long periods of time underway and longer times seperated from family

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Of the three Navy core values Honesty, Courage, Commitment, Courage is the corner stone. Have the courage to trust your people have the courage to commit to yourself to being bold, and don't be afraid to take risk or to trust, have the courage to be honest with yourself. Remember, always remember they Sailors that work for you are people too.
