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

Pros

The Benefits are great(healthcare, retirement options, steady income), lasting relationships, traveling to foreign countries.

Cons

The hours are long whenever there is work that needs to be done, underways may be exciting but its still slightly depressing to be away from home and loved ones for so long. You may not always agree with your chain of command but still have to meet there expectations.
