    I worked at US Navy full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and pride that comes with being in the United States Armed Forces. Discounts on base facilities like the commissary, fuel and some civilian stores. If you are getting promoted on time, it motivates you to work harder.

    Cons

    Deployments can be brutal, and the tendency of everybody being in your business can be really annoying. If you don't mind taking orders from people who might not know what they saying, then this is a place for you. Work hours can be really long, and you are expected not to complain.

    Advice to Management

    None
