    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at US Navy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits including 30 days paid vacation time yearly, low cost medical and dental insurance, and free life insurance up to $400,000 of coverage. Exceptional opportunity to travel. Hard to find work experience. 20 year set retirement not limited by age.

    Cons

    Invasive regulations on appearance and behavior. Test based advancement that results in sub-par to downright horrible members becoming work place supervisors over excellent leaders that lack "book smarts" or simply do not achieve higher scores. Severe penalties for simple and unimportant mistakes such as 45 days of confinement and half months pay for 2 months for missing morning roll call due to traffic multiple times.(excuses even if backed up by the news and video are ignored) Simply being in the area of someone who starts a fight can also result in 2 months of half pay and confinement. Restrictions on area of travel. Toxic working environments due to inability to fire low performing members or outright hostile members. Long work hours often surpassing 72 - 84+ working hours weekly depending on the department. Some departments report 96 - 104 hours regularly.
