Real world education and experience, great benefits, and adequate pay. Chance to travel the world for free. See great things and meet great people.

    I worked at US Navy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free College, they push you to get certifications which only help YOUR career, hands on experience for systems you would never get access to in any entry level position in any company.

    Cons

    It's the military, you have to deploy, you have to do actual work, you have to work for people who may actually have less experience and qualification than you, and when you feel it's time to leave the organization the environment has the potential to get toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to assist your subordinates in their careers instead of using them as stepping stones for your own.


  2. "Worth one enlistment for the experience and training."
