The navy is a great way to serve your country with many great benefits included. Experience, healthcare, retirement, college benefits. It is a tough place to work but as long as you work hard you will succeed.

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.

All info captured in survey. I was very pleased with the Navy and enjoyed being an officer in the United States Navy. I would encourage others to join.

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.

Everyone is very nice and willing to help in any way possible. Each person would take advantage of teachable moments that arose. The office group was social and often ate lunch together or celebrated birthdays, etc.
Pros
Friendly coworkers, great office environment

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.

Overall this is a good place to work as a civilian. Although civil service as a whole has changed over the years pros are more telework and flexible schedules. Cons are not as much job security and lower pay raises.

Management within the HR office was terrible. Constant harassment of the employees. Supervisors spent more time looking for things wrong than training or getting actual work done.
Pros
Fellow coworkers
Cons
lack of training and proper supervision

I came into the US Navy just a few years out of high school without a direction for my career. I've now spent 12 years in the Navy and have progressed from a high school education to a Master's Degree, I've traveled the world, and will retire before turning 50. The US Navy is tasking, and much is asked of you, but opportunities abound if you are willing to put in the work.
Pros
Education
Cons
Length of time away from family
