I have been working at US Navy full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Diverse opportunities, leadership development, great travel opportunities and you will never work with better, more dedicated people.
Lifelong personal and professional relationships

Cons

The only con that is truly worth adding to a review is deployments and sea-time. Family separation is hard, but in the end you have to understand that you volunteered for the service and you are supporting something MUCH greater than yourself. Your sacrifice is to the benefit of our NATION!

Advice to Management

Keep the main thing, the main thing.

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

    Pros

    Great life, medical, and dental insurance. Leadership oriented. Great vacation compensation. Uniform allowances. Travel about the world rendering medical care where needed to any degree necessary.

    Cons

    Working away from home regularly. Overnight duties every 3-6 days. There is an expectation that you will maintain a weight standard that is only normal for an 18 year old athlete though out the time you are serving. The manual labor from the extra duties that come along with the job cause a lot of wear and tear on the body and mind which may prevent you from living your normal life.

    Advice to Management

    Giving basic Coprsman(HM) a nursing degree or LPN at least from the experience they have obtain from the Navy would help them upon leaving the Navy. Right now basic HMs leave the Navy with anywhere from 5-20 years of service to the country rendering more care and training new nurses and other medical professional but are not given any credentials for everything that they've done that would actually show there experience to employers upon separation from the Navy.

    I have been working at US Navy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very stable once you're in. Career path is set in stone and there's no deviating from it. You can literally sit there and collect a pay check for 20 years and retire without having done much of anything. Some people think that's a great deal, I think it's a terrible way to run an organization.

    Cons

    Schedules are constantly changing and very demanding. 10-12 hour work days and 9-month deployments are taxing. Advancement for officers is based on time in service, not ability.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to fire people/kick them out. Make the military a meritocracy. If you do something well, you should get rewarded/paid for it. Everyone earns the same pay no matter how much you put in; therefore, motivation to do well wanes over time.
