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

    Pros

    Responsibility is simply amazing at a very young age. Responsibility only grows as you achieve rank. If you get to the ultimate - command - you are accountable.

    Cons

    okay, sometimes moving isn't always in a family's best interest, but needs of the Navy do come first. Compensation is adequate, but not superior. However, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Stay in shape - it's good for you, plus there will come a time when the military will give you the boot if you don't

    Advice to Management

    Maintain and do not lower standards
