    Pros

    -great medical benefits
    -great training
    -see the world
    -great pay once you have been in for a while
    -worth it for GI bill alone

    Cons

    -horrible pay when starting out
    -quality of life can be absolutely horrible
    -The navy refuses to work with people with disabilities. I was injured and forced out. Its so big that it really cant take care of the people who serve. everything is your responsibility

    Advice to Management

    The leadership doesn't understand what its like to live with a disability. ALLOW EXCEPTIONS. People are not useless once they are no longer medically fit to serve

    Pros

    Great mission, amazing team of medical personnel.

    Cons

    your experience is very dependent on your command - my command in Alameda, CA is amazing: helpful, motivated, with a lot of energy. Some can be quite depressing and stagnant, from what I hear when I talk to other sailors.

    Pros

    great place to start, unlimited chances for advancement, travel was outstanding. Loved working with people from around the country. If you need help funding school they will help.

    Cons

    Deployments. made 13 x 6 month long deployments. Ship life could be better, but they have made it better in the last 30 years of my service.

    Advice to Management

    stop worrying about your promotion, and your next job. Fulfill what you put out take care of the troops. Make sure you mean it before you talk about it.
