Appreciation and acknowledgment from leadership

Enjoyed my work with the Navy, I was able to use skills learned in Education and serve with passion to help others reach their fullest potential. My last Supervisor was the greatest! He led with with compassion and cared about his employees. I will never forget his caring spirit and willingness to allow one to broaden their career and leadership goals. My favorite job was education and training policy writing and continuing education. I would love to go back to that type work, however had to move on for more pay due to paying daughter’s college education.

Pros

Flexible work schedules, diverse people, some leadership good, opportunities to learn, travel opportunities, appreciation ceremonies, rewards, bonus pays, etc.

Cons

Very political at times. Some prejudices, but my boss would take steps to correct issues when brought to his attention.

The pay is not always comparable with the private sector. Also, promotion opportunities are not

Promotion opportunities and education opportunities are not always available. Although the organization speaks highly of diversity, it is not always apparent when it comes to positions that shows diversity.

Pros

Innovation, work with up to date designing tools and software.

Cons

Takes months to get software, don’t encourage people to get higher education opportunities and degrees.

Highly dependent on your rating

Choose your rate, choose your fate. This saying reigns true for many rates with abysmal advancement rates. The testing process is archaic and many good sailors don't get promoted because of the evaluation process and having to rote memorize things for a test you basically never use in your day to day operation. Other than that, the pay is pretty good if you're married and stationed in a high BAH area. Benefits are great if you have kids. Great if you're single and deployed and save your money. Don't buy a mustang as soon as you get your first paycheck and you'll be fine.

Good government job

Work/life balance was good. Interesting projects to work on and lots of opportunities to explore your interests. Red tape and bureaucracy unfortunately gets in the way of doing truly great work.
