I worked at US Navy full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

If someone wants to find out their limits and exceed them while working with people from many different walks of life, this is great. As well as the benefits are great, such as medical, dental and steady compensation.

Cons

Lots of adversity to deal with as with all jobs, but creativity isnt rewarded as it should be across the board

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure that you get to know the individuals you lead so as to properly deal with their futures in a manner that excludes personal biases and generalizations

    I worked at US Navy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Medical and dental are free. Camaraderie, meeting people from different backgrounds, opportunity to work on cutting edge technology, discipline, requirement to be physically fit, and seeing the world are all part of the job. The best part of the day is waking up and donning on a crisp pair Khakis. Wearing a suit doesn't do any justice. It's a challenging environment, and one has to work out of his/her comfort zone, which leads to personal growth and a thick skin.

    Cons

    Currently, the budget cuts are bad news for the military as they are reducing force size. Unfortunately, it's an unfair situation, but bottom line is "needs of the Navy." One has to make sure that he/she is in standards of everything they do. There's no room for error or at least stupid, immature mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders in DC need to get their act straight! There is a saying that "one should lead by example." This is not happening.
