I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Everything you do is for a greater purpose, either your responding to a crisis or taking the necessary precautions to prevent one. Life is very important and knowing that things you do and decisions you make help protect that life..is more than outstanding, it's indescribable.

Cons

You meet alot of different people with different views of life. Everyone has different beliefs and sometimes those different view points cause conflict.

Advice to Management

Have a great work ethic, have a desire to want to learn more and be willing to do more than what's expected of you.
