    Pros

    It is a community, everyone is part of a team and ultimately serving for our country. For the most part it's a good group of people you share experiences with and learn discipline. Other organizaions don't have the same bond.

    Cons

    Deployment cycels, long hours, 24/7 job, always on call. it is not an 8-5 M-F routine job. always at the needs of the Navy and have to remain flexible.
