Pros

Security clearance, diverse peronnel, certification opportunities and trade schooling also. You will have the opportunity to test and use very complex material, that in the end the Navy is intrusting you with hundreds of thousands of dollars, and if you apply enough motivation, you can become a system matter expert in those equipments wich in the long run will give you a good skill set to apply once done with the military.

Cons

You may be called in after working hours to perform a job or duty, chain of command sometimes may be unfair, and contradicting.

Advice to Management

Help your people, give them time off when transitioning from the military so they can prepare to take care of their family for life after the Navy. I've experienced leaders who micro-manage their people, and it only stumps the opportunity to help them grow and flourish as leaders themselves. The Navy is a good place regardless, but as a leader, you're only as good as your people.
