    Pros

    Everything is great about the CG. It is a military organization, so they demand a lot out of you but you get what you put into it. It is definitely worth it.

    Cons

    Being a military organization, it can be very stressful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Perhaps the best reason to work for the Coast Guard, relative to the other armed services, is its size. This puts you at a definite advantage. At the same time you have the opportunity to excel and be promoted!

    Cons

    There are few downsides working for the US Coast Guard. One should have a willingness to work in harsh conditions. Someone considering the US Coast Guard should be considering the other armed forces, their strengths and weaknesses.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Management: maintain the current approach. I developed respect and honor for a flexible management style that manages to get the job done very well under trying circumstances. Often, a more inflexible or stamped approach will not work under dynamic conditions.
