Pros: Extensive Benefits and pay, job security
Cons: Periods away from home and family
Typical day included managing personnel, coordinating with customers, producing and disseminating products to senior leadership, conduct training on work related processes and Navy requirements.
Learned to quickly adapt to a variety of situations, able to shift from task to task without wasting time and resources, greatly improved my computer skills, and focusing on inter-personnel relations.
I have managed offices with as few as 2 personnel to providing training for more than 300 military and civilian employees.
Hardest part of job was balancing work with home life; deployments and long working hours, last minute tasking and periods of uncertainty of requirements.
Best thing I got from the navy is a great network of friends that I can always depend on, and an increased feeling of self-worth.
