No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Travel, learning leadership skills, job training, post separation benefits such as GI Bill, retirement pension, adventure, meeting people from around the US and world.

Cons

Travel, deployments, promotion is based more on seniority than competence. Thick bureaucracy and tons of paperwork. Lots of tedious work with little reward.

Advice to Management

300 years of tradition unimpeded by progress.
