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

Pros

The Coast Guard offers excellent health and retirement benefits as well as family support, work life balance, telework, and stability. Coast Guard bases have gyms, cafeterias, exchanges, clinics, ball fields, etc.

Cons

As a federal agency, the Coast Guard is at the whim of the annual federal budget cycle, which can make projects difficult to plan from year to year. Currently facing possible sequestration impact.

Advice to Management

Show a personal interest in your employees.
