I only put 3 out of 5 stars for work/life balance due to the nature of being on an aircraft carrier. Was told that deployment would be 6 months out of 2 years. Instead, it was 3 weeks "out", 2 weeks "in", 1 month out, etc., THEN the 6-month deployment. Very difficult for work/life balance.

Great professional growth, good leadership.

After two years of training I served for four years on a nuclear submarine as a reactor operator. After six years my commitment was up and I went back to college only to stumble into a job as a commercial nuclear power plant operator. This has provided me with great benefits and a stable job for over thirty years.

Navy life is different than any other life. It helped me focus, and concentrate on where I was going in life. As a female, in a male dominated profession, it was not always easy but I hung in there, and received my Honorable Discharge, and then re-upped for the active duty reserves twice. I met many wonderful interesting people, and went to many exciting places. Upon discharge, I was offered great jobs with companies that had military contracts. This is the reason I recommend the U.S. Navy. Learn what you can, and then grow with it, either in the service (very difficult) or by obtaining a civilian job (more highly desired, better pay, better benefits, less hassle). Would I recommend the U.S. Navy? As an officer, yes. As enlisted? only if you have no other options for education and you have big goals and dreams - it will be hard, but the Navy will give you the background you need to succeed.

Pros and Cons
Steady pay, great friends, opportunity to learn, they pay for your education
If you get an AH for a boss, u r stuck. Transferring difficult. They station you where they want.

You name it and I’ve been there. Every day was a challenge that you really looked forward too (or I do now). From teaching computer systems at Mare Island, Ca to being on the helicopter flight crew at McMurdo Station Antarctica. Would I do another 20+ years ... HELL YES

Pros and Cons
see the world, people have your back, benefits can’t be beat
pay not that great

I started working for the Navy as a clinician in Naples Italy, then moved into Supervisor position and at one point moved to Washington DC to work at navy headquarters and help set policy for the clinical program. I actually prefer being back in the trenches which is why I would be interested in a time limited. MFLC assignment over seas. thank you

Pros and Cons
because it is DOD so followed government regulations . positive experience
5 year rule for overseas assignments
