Pros

Opportunity to work with world-class peers, competitive pay, incredible health and dental benefits, a retirement package 2nd to none... pride, professionalism... it has it all.

Cons

Deployments and time away from family. Obviously, risk of death.

Advice to Management

Senior leadership, specifically within the Navy Dental Corps, needs to get back to doing business like was done before the merger with Medical. They have lost their spines and ability to make decisions. Additionally, senior leadership is only concerned with getting themselves and their buddies promoted. It has become and ugly situation.

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

    Pros

    job security, pension, benefits are good...but the pension will go away soon...i would say within 5 years. shrewd Sailors can retire after a successful 30 year career between TSP and pension.

    Cons

    time away from family mounts stress on all, pay is average in comparison to the demands placed on enlisted, quality of life while deployed is quite bad.

    Advice to Management

    the political correctness of recent years is starting to affect the force.


  2. "Great people to work with"

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to have lots of different experiences, work with great people, and do work that is really making a difference in the world.

    Cons

    The downside of working in the US Navy is that the operational tempo is high. Most sailors spend a great deal of time away from their family and friends.
