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

Pros

The Navy provides deep comraderie and tradition. Gives you a sense of pride and a deep feeling that what you do really does make a difference.

Cons

To have a significant other and belong to any branch of the service will strain your relationship to the nth degree. You must have a strong relationship and strong communication with your wife/husband to be successful with both your career and your relationships.

Advice to Management

less bureacracy.
