A valuable government agency with highly professional members.
Pros: Security, team oriented, training, health and dental, pay.
Cons: move every 2-4 years.
Highly independent work environment; management easy to work with and peers, subordinates all goal oriented. As with all government organizations, as budgets decreased over the past several years it became more important to look at all processes and lean them to be more efficient. This also meant looking at decreasing personnel. The Coast Guard provides great value to the American people it serves and has very motivated and professional personnel in every community.
