Great training, a lot of good diversity but the processes are horrible and re-work slows up everything.

I have been working at US Navy full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Pay and benefits when you consider housing and food allowances are pretty good. The education benefits (Tuition Assistance and GI Bill) are incredible, only if you actually pursue them. You could retire at 38 and have a whole other career if you start early. Very few see combat if that is your worry.

Cons

You have to put up with a constant barrage of bad processes and inconsistent leadership that changes with the wind. "It is what it is" and "Semper Gumby" have become excuses for tolerating things that would get people in the civilian world fired.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow some re-engineering of your processes at all levels by the people who actually run those processes. Listeneing to your commanders on the ground applies to all levels, sea, and ashore.

    I worked at US Navy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of diving, physical exertion, and blowing stuff up! Great deployment schedule IF you love what you're doing.

    Cons

    You can't trust most of the officers above O-4. Sea tours are too short for junior officers. Which means you can't live a life moving every 12-18 months. I understand traveling is part of the military and I loved my deployments. I wish had more. But I hated the PCS moves. Officer sea tours need to be extended to a minimum of 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit fighting wars with power point.
