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

    Pros

    Great leadership opportunities with meeting critical challenges that can be a life or death situation. Traveling the globe to see places you only read abut in books or see in the movies. I spent 22 years and I do not regret a moment! It was great to learn to work with the folks from different parts of the country and it helped me become creative in bring a team together to get things done.

    Cons

    The work hours when you are stationed on ship, sub or combat unit are long. Moving every 2 to 3 years is not a picnic. You are not able to be at many special family events due to your deployment schedule of lack of available manpower to be granted leave.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team. They truly want to do the right thing but if you push them because you want to control them, it will backfire in the end. You cannot ask anyone to do what you are not willing to do yourself. Respect your juniors, support your peers and be truthful to your superiors.
