Pros: Structured, well paying, near perfect job security, guaranteed advancement opportunities, high degree of camaraderie, no nonsense
Cons: Very little downtime, high physical demand, not really what I was looking for
It was a great experience to help me to grow and expand my horizons, even if it did turn out to not be what I was looking for with my life. The high degree of focus and structure, combined with a no nonsense outlook, made for a very enjoyable environment for me. Recreation had a specific time and place, which was not during working hours, which is the type of work I really enjoy. I was challenged every day to do my best, and strove for that degree of excellence to which I was pushed. Growing and maturing happened as a natural part of my time there, and I was very pleased with this.
