Current Employee - Pilot in Seattle, WA

Pros

Travel, learning leadership skills, job training, post separation benefits such as GI Bill, retirement pension, adventure, meeting people from around the US and world.

Cons

Travel, deployments, promotion is based more on seniority than competence. Thick bureaucracy and tons of paperwork. Lots of tedious work with little reward.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

300 years of tradition unimpeded by progress.

    Current Employee - Nuclear Electrician's Mate

    Pros

    Travel, excellent benefits, advancement, volunteer opportunities, seeing and doing things that others haven't.

    Cons

    Plans aren't always set in stone. Life changing moments can happen in a matter of weeks. Management can be pretty lame depending on where you are stationed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Write better evals for the people who actually work hard at doing their job.
