    Current Employee - Avionics Technician E-5 in Norfolk, VA

    I have been working at US Navy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's easy to get promoted as long as you study for your exams. I made E-5 in about 3 years. Just work hard, show up to work on time, shine your boots, and study a little before your exam (you have twice a year to try and advance to the next rank)

    Cons

    The higher up the chain of the command there is usually a lot of politics. Sometimes this can be good other times bad. There's not a lot of room for dynamic changes. I usually just do what I want as long as I get the job done. Just because Chief said do step A-then B- then C-etc etc. isn't always the best way to go about it. So I just get the job done the most effectively. Easier to ask for forgiveness then permission in my experience... i mean... it's not like they can fire you or anything haha.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, I think they shouldn't let Officers and Chiefs rotate as often as they do. It seems like as soon as a Divo really gets in the swing of things and starts being productive He/She has to leave because of their sea to shore rotation. Keep them around longer and people will opt to become more loyal and hard working for them.
