    Pros

    - Leadership and job specific training provided without any experience required - Good variety of job roles available allowing you to develop well-rounded skills over time - A tight-knit community - If you look to take it, a much higher level of responsibility can be afforded to you exceeding that expected of your age and experience

    Cons

    - Moving around every few years - Requirements of service sometimes requires you to take positions that you may not like - Like all organisations, while there are good leaders, there are also some bad leaders - You are in the service, work life balance can be limited depending on your role

    Pros

    Medical is very good once you get into the specialist side of things Mental health help is readily avaialbe with many avenues to explore if need be Pay is very good despite what most people say

    Cons

    You would think being deployed would be the hardest part but it's actually when the ship is in refit and you have to deal with contractor regulations as well as navy ones with minimal manning because it just happens to be a great time to put people on courses. People getting promoted to management because they have hung around for a while and not having much actual skill at it(the majority unfortunately). Many "trades" do not line up with outside trades(ask a CSO what their job prospects are outside) People get promoted and stick around at the rank for years(decades in some cases) and this makes it harder to get promoted as you need spots to be open to do this.
