    Pros

    Good pay, job security, travel opportunities, opportunities for promotion, great health care/benefits. 30 days paid vacation per year, unlimited sick days (as long as they are legitimate), 6 weeks of paid maternity leave.

    Cons

    Time away from your family. Promotions are becoming harder to come by. Work life balance is not the greatest. How much you enjoy your job can depend greatly on who your boss is.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to treat others how you want to be treated. Also remember that when people are not deployed it is important that they have time with their families.

    Pros

    The U.S. Navy is an equal opportunity employer. Great Benefits for both Employees and family of employees. Opportunities for advancement, higher education, and tools and utilities to assist with re-integrating back into the civilian employment and higher education benefits that extend beyond terms of enlistment.

    Cons

    The U.S. Navy requires terms of enlistment of 4 or more years. Qualification of individuals for technical fields are based on scoring of an entrance exam ASVAB. Suggest candidates review study guides on ASVAB prior to taking exam. Candidates should contact local recruiters for more information and should consider needs of the Navy may negatively impact time

    Pros

    While in the military I enjoyed many of the benefits that the Navy had to offer here are several of them, Travel, Pay, Teamwork, Steady Job, and Medical Benefits.

    Cons

    Not many I would have to say Long Deployments.

    Advice to Management

    I'm a hard dedicated worker who is use too putting in the long hours when scheduling and controlling aircraft. I have 14 years experience preparing flight schedules and scheduling air space for air crews to operate in. I have worked stateside and abroad for many years conducting this type of work.

    Pros

    Good organization, rewarding work, good pay, and great benefits.

    Cons

    Long hours, constant stress concerning work outside of working hours. Little to no communication from bottom to top, rogue middle managers do hinder productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a personal day policy. Workers should not have to feel that work is inescapable. Management needs to be strict about leaving work at the workplace with the exception of ACTUAL mission needs.
