    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Royal Australian Navy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Challenges you more than any other job

    Cons

    Changed for the worse over the years, too many people protecting their own careers to see how the Junior sailors were suffering

    Advice to Management

    Survey the junior ranks and actually listen to them, hardest part as a senior sailor was watching my team continually flogged with no respite

    I have been working at Royal Australian Navy

    Pros

    Stable employment with a really good level of employer super contributions. Good options for professional development.

    Cons

    Not for those people who do not like extended periods away from home- obviously this depends on specialisation but can be onerous on relationships.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Royal Australian Navy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Medical is very good once you get into the specialist side of things Mental health help is readily avaialbe with many avenues to explore if need be Pay is very good despite what most people say

    Cons

    You would think being deployed would be the hardest part but it's actually when the ship is in refit and you have to deal with contractor regulations as well as navy ones with minimal manning because it just happens to be a great time to put people on courses. People getting promoted to management because they have hung around for a while and not having much actual skill at it(the majority unfortunately). Many "trades" do not line up with outside trades(ask a CSO what their job prospects are outside) People get promoted and stick around at the rank for years(decades in some cases) and this makes it harder to get promoted as you need spots to be open to do this.
