    Pros

    They train you, take great care of you and help you develop professionally.

    Cons

    Life on sea duty can be incredibly arduous. Lack of ability to plan your own career is the worst aspect. You get locked into your current career path and have minimal odds of shifting around if you don't like it.

    Advice to Management

    Allow flexibility between officer communities the way you are trying to do it for enlisted.
