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

    Pros

    In what service can you fly aircraft, drive ships, jump out of (perfectly good) airplanes, dive to the depths of sea, and serve in special forces considered the best of the best? Only the U.S. Navy.

    Cons

    Deployments (and the associated separation from family) continue to get longer and longer. It's time to lengthen tours, shorten deployments, and reduce the number of moves in a 20-year career.

    Advice to Management

    Flag Officers have an *almost* across-the-board tendency to be detached from the work lives of their subordinates. They forget the amount of work required to provide them with the desired (but not always necessary) level of support. Get out of your offices and among the Officers and Enlisted whom you lead and talk to them. Request frank assessments of current working conditions.

    Being away from your family and the hours.

    Advice to Management

    Develop young sailors instead of giving them busy work.
