Does US Navy offer dental insurance?

Pros

The Navy pays for schooling, gives you free life insurance, offers discounted medical coverage, allows no money down when buying a home, and offers a bunch of other discounts from companies that support military.

Cons

The time spent away from family, hours of work, possible strenuous work for little compensation, little free time, contract requirements, may be forced to move somewhere you don't want to, stressful on families, numerous rules and regulations you are held to, ect.

Advice to Management

This is my personal experience of the Navy. I am not trying to slander the military in no way, shape or form. I think it's a great opportunity and if I could do it all over again I would do it the same. Everyone's experiences may be different.

Does US Navy have a pension plan?

Pros

Great benefits and pension, good people

Cons

Poor funding. Not a place for someone who likes capitalism, it's socialism. Progression through ranks is pretty similar for MDs no matter how much work one puts in.

Does US Navy offer a wellness program?

Pros

Benefits are great, especially if you take advantage of technical programs and other free services. It looks great on your resume if you chose to leave. Pay is good for a single person fresh out of high school. High opportunity for travel. Gets you out of your bubble of your hometown.

Cons

Terrible leadership. With smart people leaving for better paying jobs and way better morale, only the dumb or butt kissing stay and seek to push all responsibility and work on those below them because that is how it was for them. If you know how to do something, you will end up being the only one doing it and bear all responsibility for it. Rampant sexism and now it is full of social justice policies. Double jeopardy is also allowed, as you literally give up most of your rights to join. My friend was accused of a heinous crime and found innocent in court, but our commanding officer didn't like that so he brought him to be tried by the military.

Advice to Management

Advancement needs to be peer based, actual sexism against men needs to be addressed. Time in service should mean literally nothing next to actual knowledge and skill level. Physical fitness needs to be a top priority as fat people make the uniform look bad and tend to become the terrible leaders.

Benefits are great, especially if you take advantage of technical programs and other free services.
