    I worked at Indian Navy full-time

    Pros

    Adventurous opportunities to work and travel. It's not a job. It's a life that you have to lead. No other organization can trust you with so much. No other organization pays you so much at such an young age.

    Cons

    Like I said, it's not a job. It's a life that you have to live and experience! Be prepared.
