    I worked at US Navy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Diverse group of people, global travel, continuous personal growth, great benefits, and purpose.

    Cons

    Long hours, short notice travel, extended periods of time away from loved ones, authoritarian leadership style, and slow to implement change.

    Advice to Management

    Change promotion structure for senior enlisted leaders and major command officers. The current model where senior leadership changes every 18-24 months does not allow for organizational change. Additionally, the effectiveness of senior leaders in these short duration tours of duty do not provide quantitative analysis of their results. A constant theme of “waiting out” senior leaders is common among staff’s at major... commands. Successful corporations do not have senior leadership turnover every 18-24 months. The Navy (US Military) needs to rethink the current promotion system and the length a leaders stays in a single position.
