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

Pros

See the world. I've been to Hawaii, Japan, Philippines, Bahrain, Phuket, Australia, and Bali. I've worked with some outstanding brave young men and women. Good promotion, and the best benefits in America.

Cons

Very very long hours when deployed and while doing workups. Also, there is the small chance of being injured or killed in a peacetime accident or war. It does happen. Several of my friends have not come back home.

Advice to Management

Maintain our strong traditions and hold the line.

    Ensure personnel are aware and are taking advantage of credentialing programs.

    I worked at US Navy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You are able to see the world, as well as get your education for those whom have not completed one. The officer programs are also very beneficial.

    Cons

    It is sometimes not very family friendly when it comes to initial training. The ability for growth is very difficult if you are not informed on the correct rating.
