Accelerate your life. I joined the Navy as a young 17 year old knucklehead, but I've developed into a strong leader.

I have been working at US Navy full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

See the world. I've been to Hawaii, Japan, Philippines, Bahrain, Phuket, Australia, and Bali. I've worked with some outstanding brave young men and women. Good promotion, and the best benefits in America.

Cons

Very very long hours when deployed and while doing workups. Also, there is the small chance of being injured or killed in a peacetime accident or war. It does happen. Several of my friends have not come back home.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maintain our strong traditions and hold the line.

    Pros

    Depending on your job, you can move through the ranks to get good experience from the technical side to leadership roles. There are a lot of resources available to help study for advancement exams, though the ability to attain certain study material can be difficult depending on the budget of the command. The GI Bill was a great way to help earn my degree after I left the Navy and my overall military experience was helpful in finding my new career.

    Cons

    The Navy life is a 24/7 routine. Depending on your command and current world events, don't expect this to be a 9-to-5 job as you are always on call to respond. Though there are a lot of ways to earn your degree while on active duty, it will take much longer to attain as you'll likely be dropping classes if you have to deploy and have no internet access.
