Navy

5.0 of 5 stars

August 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Great college benefit, smart choice for enlisted folks with few other options I suppose.

Downers

You have to deal with the same other **** as anywhere else, just more institutional here.

Comments

If you don't like working within a rigid bureaucracy, this might not be for you. You will work for lots of people that are not as smart as you.

Navy Contracts

3.0 of 5 stars

April 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Set career path with weak competition. Hard to fail. Most folks are nice and there is little backstabbing / office politics.

Downers

Low salaries to start are brutal. Worse though is dealing with an oppressive bureaucracy. You are the bureaucracy.

Comments

Don't be turned off by the low salaries and unimpressive titles. It's good experience and you'll move up in time.

Navy Surface Warfare Officer

4.0 of 5 stars

March 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

As a Navy Surface Warfare Officer, you get managerial and leadership experience at a very young age. Opportunities to travel and most companies after leaving the Navy are willing and ready to hire you.

Downers

Deployments can be long, which means time away from family. Some commanding officers can be unfair.

Comments

The recruitment process is long. From when you talk to a recruiter, to when you begin training is about 6 months. Start early.

Needs of the Navy

3.0 of 5 stars

December 2015 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Honorable Duty, Unique opportunities, Camaraderie, Opportunity to See the World

Downers

Limited Career Flexibility, Red Tape, Work-Life Balance, Applicability of Skills to Outside World

Comments

Great opportunity to do unique things in service to your country. However, very few have the chance to do what you see in the commercials. If you are not flexible, adaptable, and resilient, look elsewhere.
