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 Management

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

    Pros

    Descent pay and the bonuses make staying in enticing, but in the end it's not worth it.

    Cons

    Promotions aren't based on performance. Your supervisors are usually looking out for themselves and don't have your best interests in mind (be careful trusting any of them).

    Advice to Management

    Nothing will ever change...

    Pros

    Free college, Free food, Free place to stay and VA home loan once you get out. Free medical and dental while you are in the service. If you smoke, you'll make friends or life.

    Cons

    Advancement only comes in jobs that people hate. If you love your job then you may want to stay in, but then so do the people above you. People in authority typically get there too quickly and it goes to their heads. Jobs are scarce once you get out. Everyone gives lip service to the Military but no one paying over minimum wage wants to hire vets.

    Advice to Management

    Try and start taking care of your people. People are your most important asset but they are treated like they are not human for no good reason. Additionally, don't assume your people think the same as people did 20 years ago when you were junior enlisted. We had openly gay people in our department and no one in the department cared. In fact no one under the 3rd in command of the ship cared.
