    Former Employee - Captain in Visakhapatnam (India)

    I worked at Indian Navy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I loved the adventure, professionalism and leadership opportunities that the Indian Navy offered to me. It has put me a cut above the rest in the corporate world. Now that I have worked in both the arenas, I value what the training and opportunities that the services have bestowed on me

    Cons

    You must have a love for adventure, you must be ready to sacrifice on family life with being transferred at times at short notice across the country. You must be ready to live out of boxes and move houses four to five times in a city before the next transfer out of the city. The Indian Navy is only for the strong hearted and not the weaklings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. And Pranab Mukherjee is not the CEO. The Chief of the Naval Staff is the CEO

    Pros

    You get an opportunity to serve your country with pride and uniform. You will get good carrier growth opportunities internally but you must have strong education background.. You get lifetime Pension after retirement, Medical benefits to you and your family for the lifetime too. so if you are in search of job with will to live hard life than join the Indian Navy.

    Cons

    This is not a luxury job.Very tougher working hours, You may have to work for 18 to 20 hours a Day, depending on situation. Very harsh management. Think twice before joining.

    Former Employee - Senior Technical Officer in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at Indian Navy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    job security ,good for those do not like changes in job profile, perks of government service, increments and raises not linked to performance

    Cons

    total non- transparency in appraisal system (biggest drawback), rigid system, cannot change jobs for professional development (another big drawback for technical professionals), limited opportunity for growth, no assured growth unlike other government services, salary not commensurate with hardships ,unstable family life due to frequent transfers and lack of family accomodation/proper schools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HRM reforms most urgent; need to break away from old british systems, manpower management should be planned to cater for high rate of growth stagnation.
