I worked at US Navy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Depending on what rate you sign up for, you have the opportunity to travel across the world and see many exotic locations. They also instill skills and an attitude in you which will allow you to succeed at almost anything you do.

Cons

In the lower ranks you WILL be treated like a baby. You have virtually no say in absolutely anything. Be prepared to work unexpected hours.

Advice to Management

Even though some in the lower ranks act like children, the majority are not. Please don't treat them like one.
