    I worked at US Navy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Across 30+ years of service to my country I was blessed to accomplish countless things and go to countless places I never would have thought possible as a youth. Other than almost 100% mismanagement of assignment processes the entire time -- at least in my case -- the Navy offers too many benefits (from education, advanced education, enlisted to officer commissioning programs, full healthcare for you and family, some housing/family schools benefits, retirement pensions & now 401K type plans, etc.), far more than I can list here. Benefits are off the charts, though compensation doesn't always jive with civilian equivalents. In the end, it was worth the many challenges. A career and lifetime well spent.

    Cons

    Perhaps like all military, extended family separation is often dreadfully depressing not just for the service member but for their entire family, resulting in far higher than civilian divorce rates. It's extremely difficult to get through.

    Travel, pay, benefits and opportunities. Different job opportunities every three to five years. Retirement at 20 years. Who else offers this.

    Long hours, time away from family. It can get pretty political. Can be treated as a child sometimes. Need to ask permission for the simplest things.

    Control what you own. Take care of yout Sailors and success will come. Mission first Sailors always.
