    Pros

    Good organization to work for. Really cares about it's people. Going through a downsizing of late and opportunities to move up are harder to come by.

    Cons

    Expectation that you move every four years and will not have too many options regarding location. You can list your preferences, but ultimately will be given military orders to a unit that needs someone with your skill set.

    Touring the world on the governments dime. The post 911 g ibill.

    Its just a job THAT OWNS YOU!!!... poor salary pay for the hours you work and the time your away, no full retirment, heath care that dosn't want to pay for anything but 500 Mg ibprohen, no advancement, the complet sloths and D-bags you work with, the "racial diversity" the coast guard crams down you throat, and the don't ask dont tell that was repealed and the firey hoops you had to jump through on a daily basis just to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Quit micromanaging and trying to justify your job and proove who has the biggest swinging wang, whe understand your our boss you dont have to put us down.
