    Cons

    If you are looking for geographic stability or a boring job, this is not for you.
    Once you near the end of your career (retirement), you realize that you may have gotten out earlier and been very competitive on the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Continue (or change to) to challenge your junior workforce -they are tomorrow's leaders of the Coast Guard.
    Do not lose sight of the importance of training & education within the CG.

    Current Employee - Program Analyst in Norfolk, VA
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Challenging environment performing work in support of missions in the maritime environment for the nation. Great folks to work with, intelligent, motivated and dedicated co-workers abound.

    Cons

    Sometimes the surge work, such as supporting operations to crisis or incident can be challenging for family and life outside of the office.

    Advice to Management

    In addition to espousing work-life, shipmates and the importance of family as a verbal and written declaration, I would like to see senior leaders keeping regular hours, working out, and focusing on their families in a way that sets a visible model for junior folks.
