    I have been working at Royal Australian Navy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Working in the Royal Australian Navy provides you a secure job with a steady and dependable pay packet. You get to travel and see/experience different things; every two years or so you're likely to be posted somewhere new, which keeps it fresh and exciting. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement which means different roles, more responsibility, and better pay. You'll belong to a tight-knit organisation characterised by camaraderie and many of the friendships you'll make will last for life. On top of that, you'll be serving the interests of the nation. All with four weeks annual leave (more if you're serving at sea) and plenty of extra benefits like subsidised housing, free medical and dental care and some medical benefits for your family, as well.

    Cons

    Life in the Navy isn't for everyone, and isn't always easy. It often means long periods away from home and loved ones, sometimes without much contact with home. There are some rules on how you wear your hair, your piercings and your clothes; you'll have to give up a few of the freedoms that the average person enjoys while you're in uniform and doing your job. Sometimes circumstances can change quickly, which can have a negative impact on your family life.

    I have been working at Royal Australian Navy full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay and conditions. Free medical and Dental. subsidized accomodation. lots of courses you can use after you leave. Great friends and professional outfit. Bullying is not tolerated.

    Cons

    Time away from family is tough. recent Defence ministers have all been idiots. Too Politically correct at times. Too much emphasis on teaching common sense instead of screening for it when recruiting.

    I have been working at Royal Australian Navy

    Pros

    The benefits are good, such as medical and dental. Also housing is subsidized which is a massive pro.

    Cons

    Have to travel alot, new posting every two years not neccesarily in the same location. Not a huge amount of career satisfaction, have to go to sea (obviously) and be away from family for months at a time.

    I worked at Royal Australian Navy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I actually finished up in 1999 and wish I had never left. When starting young and single it's the way to go. Training, medical and dental, subsidised accommodation, some great people who become more than mates, just about family. Good times and travel are on the cards too. Going to sea, sure it's hard work at times but there is nothing else like it. Some really good higher ranks. Can give a feeling of being something better than average when out in the world.

    Cons

    Not much work life balance at the start but you do get time to socialise. Being away from the family for quite a while when at sea and not much sleep. Hard work depending on your rate. Some people on power trips. Pay not on par in some cases with the free market but partly made up for with additional benefits. All DDGs decommissioned.
