Productive work enviornment with uncomparable comoradity.
Electrical Work Center Supervisor (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: free medical for you and dependants, stable job, constant learning oportunities.
Cons: short breaks, away from home for 1.5 of my 3 years in service.
The hours are long and never seem to end but never once do you feel like you're not learning. So many things are happening at the same time, forcing you to constantly stay on your toes. The feeling of keeping your ship on mission to protect the United States of America is so remarkable that it seems like at times nothing could compare.

Spontaneous, Exciting, and oft time monotonous
Network Engineer (Current Employee), Washington, DCJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: knowledgeable staff, great working hours
Cons: management is kind of lacking, too many different departments that accomlsi the same tasks, over zealous supervisors
This job has given me a diverse out look on the IT field. My days are filled with network modifications, redesigns, and regular day to day administrative duties. My co workers are quite the characters! They each bring their own unique skill sets to the table and make the operation networks division the versatile, problem solving, hard charging machine it is today. The hardest part of this job is definitely the stress of immediate changes. Sometimes, a switch fails or a route misbehaves and as an admin, it is our job to find the right switch, configure, configure the routing protocol, etc. And all of this must be done in a span of hours at times! I've (we've) never met a task we haven't met and gracefully overcame. The most enjoyable parts of my job are my co workers (who I constantly teach and constantly learn from) and all the diverse pieces of network equipment I get to use, configure, and troubleshoot every day.

Good for someone needing a career without school
Hospital Corpsman (Current Employee), Gulfport, MSJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: free medical, stable paycheck, travel
Cons: managment
The Navy is a great job for the single sailor who wants to advance. As a sailor of the year I still found my job to be mismanaged by people who just wanted things done their way.

My typical work day starts with PT 0545 and ends at 1700 .

Great way to start your career, very rewarding
Operations Specialist (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 29, 2015
Joining the Navy was the best choice I ever made. Leaving was the worst. Benefits are obvious: travel around the world, meet new people and experience multiple cultures, and of course get money for college.

Pros: Rewarding work most of the time, easy to advance if you really put your effort in, travel is great, you can make some lasting friendships, your doing something that matters.

Cons: Pay isn't the best, some days it can seem like you are given idle work just because you need to look busy, some port calls are short and you may be stuck with duty on one of the days you are there and unable to leave the ship. Some of the higher ranking Chiefs and Officers can be difficult to work with and although they don't know what they are doing sometimes, you are still expected to follow the orders.

Ship's Servicemen 3rd Class (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAJanuary 28, 2015
After getting out I wished I would have stayed in like most former enlisted. Being in the military it just is what you make of it. I really enjoyed going places in the Med that I would have never been able too had it not been through the Navy.

Fire Controlman Petty Officer Second Class (Current Employee), Mayport, FLJanuary 28, 2015
Gets your foot in the door to many places. A lot of underway time and good if you are looking to get into the tech field. You see a lot of different leadership styles some good and some not so good. The co workers for the most part make it enjoyable. It's not for everybody though.

Working and learning with my fellow shipmates
Marine Electrician (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: getting the job done in a timely manner
Cons: being away from family for long periods of time.
I was an electrician who not only learn how to work on electrical equipment onboard navy vessels but had the opportunity to drive navy vessels. I have the opportunity to serve my country and see other countries help in community relations in other countries in which was a small part that I could show on my behalf that I am proud to be a representative to local people in foreign countries as an american sailor. Hardest part of my job was being away from my family ,Maid me proud to represent my country and my family, Most enjoyable part of my job was when something did not work , I worked on it no matter how log it took and it worked. I was always proud or take pride in the WORK I Do that is very important to me . To inspire others to take pride in the work they do ,
