Pros: can grow at a fast pace

There were no limits to what you do or learn. The telecommunication field can be very vast. the navy allowed us to work on some of the most secrete equipment.

A life changing experience that has allowed me to honorably serve my country.
Chief Information Systems Technician (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: service to country
Cons: time away from my family.
From the age of 18, I have been given the privilege to serve our country. Early on we are taught to have a work ethic above all others. We are mentored by upper management and the diverse culture allows us to grow into well rounded adults. The most difficult aspect of serving our country is spending time away from our family. The most rewarding part – more... of our job is giving back to those junior service members whom will soon be in charge. – less

Boatswains Mate (Former Employee), Great Lakes, ILJuly 16, 2014
In the military you learn how to make your bed so well that you should be able to bounce a coin off of it, properly wear the uniform, learn proper etiquette and manners, respect, and march in formation. But the best part is the morals and outlook the Navy gives you. The hardest part is being away from home, and the best is the family you make while – more... you're in the service. – less
