    I worked at US Navy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You can't beat the benefits, and the ability to have a career with free training. The medical and educational benefits alone are a reason to join.

    Cons

    The political structure is terrible. There is no accountability to upper leadership and they continues to underestimate the lower paid employees.
