I worked at US Navy full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Time off is good and there are great medical benefits. Educational benefits are available with tuition reimbursement and grad school opportunities. If you are in technology there are a lot of opportunities. Many old timers are retiring opening the doors for new hires and mid level managers.

Cons

Pay takes a while to catch up with the private sector but does eventually. You are at the mercy of the Federal Government. The FERS retirement system could be better.

    Pros

    Decent pay, great on-the-job training, and great stepping stone for those unable to afford college on their own. Has some management that really care for workers

    Cons

    Long hours and no family/work balance even when stationed on shore duty stateside. often ignores its own rules/regulations if it benefits them

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people otherwise all the good individuals will continue to get out for better companies in the civilian sector

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

    Pros

    Travel the world for free
    Learn a few new trades that are priceless
    Learn to work as a team and work on leadership
    Comradery: Pretty adhesive to each other. It doesn't matter how much you dislike someone you always help them out on or off duty.

    Cons

    Port visits are really short and sometimes require 2 or 3 shipmates unless your an officer (Just one).
    Some of the people inside are only there for the money and make your life miserable mainly because they are not focused on making things better, just focused on making easy $$$ and skylarking, making the work for the people who do want to make it work, harder on them and others.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be quick to judge. Just because you dont agree with someone off the bat doesn't make them wrong. Gather the details and get the full picture. Don't becomes one of the upper management that gets to comfortable and makes rash decisions because there at the top and they must be right all the time. Seen that quite a bit. Hazing is not cool any way you do it too.
