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

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 Management

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.
