    Pros

    there are great things about the Navy. You get medical benefits... maybe not the best medical benefits but they will take care of you. They will pay for you to get an education. You have the opportunity to do some of the coolest things in the world and meet some of the best people in the world.

    Cons

    If you are a family person, it can make it hard being on deployment. They don't hire the brightest people. They have a fix it until it breaks attitude.

    Pros

    Great Pay and Benefits Opportunity to see the world Top notch training Great Opportunity to advance Great Education Benefits High quality of co-workers and supervisors (for the most part)

    Cons

    Long working hours Multiple relocations Long Deployments often without communications to the outside world Lots of rules and regulations Hazardous working environment confined spaces No personal time or space when underway

    Advice to Management

    Value your subordinates personal time, it is what they value the most. Make standards realistic and reasonable to up hold. Evaluate manning and workload and ensure they are realistic to get the job done without breaking someone or tempting them to give up their integrity.

    Pros

    Project and personnel management experience.

    Cons

    No "leadership" opportunity for junior officers. You are a figure head.

    Advice to Management

    Allow junior officers to make more decisions rather than bypass them to work directly with enlisted NCOs.

    Pros

    Full time employment, great pay and benefits, the skill and training that I have received while serving in the Navy will benefit me the rest of my life both in the work force and family life. I'll never find a job where I get to travel the world and get paid to see new places.

    Cons

    There are days with very long working hours and the underway eat into your family and personal life so much that it is hard to do anything other then think about work even when you are at home. There is always that potential to be called in at anytime of the day.

    Advice to Management

    really I can't since all of the policies are made outside my control.
