    Former Employee - Electronics Technician (ET2) in San Diego, CA

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

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about who you are and where you want to go in life. Otherwise your individual experience will vary greatly. Most of this will be based on your attitude. Another strong factor will be if you are the type of person to work for "the man". In short order you will however gain global exposure and have a hands on experience with how the government waste money. While traveling to different countries you will have the opportunity to experience McDonald's, Subway, and Starbucks in some of the remote places that this country has installed democracy. In short order you will be shown the world for what it really is and be left with a question of if you should continue to serve or stop participating in economic terrorism.

    Cons

    One of the common phrases passed around during my service was "We defend democracy, not practice it". No, it's not the right thing to do for anyone with a family or anyone wanting to have a family. If you are a female you can always join up and stay pregnant your entire enlistment. This way you don't have to deploy on a ship. If you just want your college paid for stay in long enough to get most of your gi bill, then, just ride a faked injury until you get a medical discharge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the enlisted chain of command, do yourselves a favor by not pretending you are also not stuck in the military because your life has no other options. For the officer chain of command, you are all useless. Get out of the racket while you can.
