The Navy taught me a lot, but its not for me.
Electronics Technician 2nd Class Petty Officer (Current Employee), Norfolk, VASeptember 14, 2014
Pros: paycheck and health insurance.
Cons: drama, lies, separation from family.
With having 4 children and a wife, the Navy just isn't my future. Although I have learned a great deal in my field of electronics, It is time for me to move on. The Military is turning into something it is not and I don't want to be apart of it. I will be able to further my education in the near future and move on from the Navy. My wife and my children – more... support me in this. I will not fail. – less

Busy and demanding
Program Assistant (Former Employee), Bethesda, MarylndSeptember 14, 2014
Pros: sick leave
Cons: no time for lunch
Work load falls on a few capable people. Too many chiefs (all engineers) and few indians.
Typical day to monitor hourly payrolls, contracts with contractors to insure compliance, writing contracts and interpreting bids from contractors to insure their ability to comply with the work needed.
Co-workers were the other program assistants and the accounting – more... department. Hardest part of the job was procuring passage to Spain for a water vehicle. Enjoyment was a feeling of doing the job right! – less

A way of life -- not a job
Master-At-Arms (Former Employee), Coronado, CASeptember 14, 2014
Pros: benefits, travel, education
Cons: no unadulterated time off. different way of life than most anything in the civilian world.
The navy is a great way to learn skill sets that are not available in the civilian sector. Traveling is another great thing about the Navy. Some of my favorite times were on deployment on a ship in the middle of the ocean. Simply an amazing experience.

The life lessons that can be learned here are tremendous and I am unable to explain it. The military – more... is a way of life and not just a job. – less

Good Place to Grow
Aviation Electrician (Former Employee), Norfolk, VASeptember 12, 2014
Pros: health care, free shelter, food.
Cons: deployments, 24/7 job. there is no real time off.
When work is available you work with a team to manage that part. Taking it in, documenting it, running it up, if no errors occur run it again. When errors are detected we would attempt to fix it. Then send the part back out to be used again.
I've learned how to manage a team. Skills related to time management, social skills and how to deal with stressful – more... situations.
The hardest part of the job is getting new bosses. Always rotating upper management makes it hard to get to know what your boss wants in terms of work.
I enjoyed the culture the most. I was part of a team; I love being part of a team. – less

Excellent career path with exceptional benefits
Senior Electronics Supervisor (Current Employee), Multiple job locationsSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: extensive training, good pay, excellent benefits
Cons: time away from family
My career in the US Navy was filled with challenges that were rewarding and beneficial. The training I received was some of the best the world could offer. I was given specialized training in my field of work which I in turn passed on to up and comers. I was afforded the opportunity to visit far off lands and gain insight into other cultures and people – more... around the world. The hardest part of my job was leaving my family behind while on deployment. I found the most enjoyment with the friendships I developed over the years. I have no regrets at all and would not trade my experience for anything. – less
