    I have been working at US Navy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Travel opportunities. Depending on your position, you can be very well set up for a great job on the outside. Free college, with some downsides and hoops you have to jump through. Free medical/dental. Great idea for someone out of high school who doesn't really know what they want to do yet. Decent pay.

    Cons

    You travel to a lot of places, but never get very much time in any of them. Navy corpsmen are terrifyingly bad, for the most part. Depending on your job, you may not be allowed a chance to go to medical or dental by your boss. This is deemed necessary to ensure the boat will be able to get underway on time, so all of your bosses will be in unison when they deny you. The pay is not appropriate for how much work and hours you put in, depending on your job.

    Advice to Management

    If people cared more, much more work would get done. Stop treating your people like dirt, and they might actually try at their job. Plan better, and by better, I don't mean more. You don't need to stop work in order to have 5 planning meetings throughout the day. There's not nearly enough space.
