    Current Employee - Undesignated Sailor in Norfolk, VA

    I have been working at US Navy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    All organizational values are available online and on printed material. Free medical, dental, housing for spouse and children, and work-related travel expenses. Trust me, the navy will train- the quality of the training will vary. In my own experience, none of the training wasn't very standardized nor were most of them were properly executed.

    Cons

    Too many cons I don't know where to start.
    You are there at the needs of the navy-That means the navy will use, abuse, and exploit you how ever they want. Sexual harassment and bullying are supposed to be "routed" through immediate chain of command- That means an E-3 sailor (basic level) must submit his grievance to immediate superior (an E-4, then E-5, and so-on) before he can escalate the problem to someone who can do something about the issue.There is virtually no HR to report to. You will not be treated like a human being. Everyone is expendable to the navy. Too much time, money, and resource are wasted everyday. Free time does not exist. You will never have balance between work, family, and personal life. If you are mildly smart, prepared to get extra (negative) attention. Supervisors can make up non-sense excuses to send sailors to captian's mast (navy court). Guile and Cutthroat permeates through the air of the work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really have advice to give to this organization.
