Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Military benefits/discounts for non-military work.
Salary - sometimes a con
Tuition assistance
Kitchen in one of the buildings.
Exchange available on base.

Cons

Not good at training.
More unprofessional and unorganized than expected.
Work hours not flexible, unless you have a kid.
Poor communication between some departments. Two of my bosses sit next to each other all day and by the end of the day did not verify they were on the same page about work travel the following morning. Then they complain about lack of funds for travel because they have to make unnecessary trips to make up for not coordinating.

Advice to Management

set a better example for your employees.

    I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
