Pros: great benefits, great people to work with, not sitting at a desk all day
Cons: a rotating schedule made it difficult to commit to things in outside of work.
The Coast Guard was a wonderful place to work. I would have loved to retired from there. It was just difficult to balance work and life with a job with required one to be on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week. As much as I love work, I think a life outside of work is important, as well.
