Suggestions for improvement

  • Improvement I would make is comparable pay to outside companies and private contractors we pay. If we have the mo er to pay private contractors that much then we should have that much money to pay our own people.

What I like about the company

The navy is a great place to work. No its not for everybody it takes special people willing to sacrifice their time and time with their family. It's not for everyone I will be honest there and it might be for one person in the family but not right for the family and when that's said well it's not right for that one person eaither. But you get paid ok. Healthcare dental. TSP a decent retirement it has great positives but it also has its negatives. But i would recommend working here to anybody as long and you have initiative and are ok being away from family and friends then hey it's a great place to work.

What I dislike about the company

The only thing I disapprove of it the pay. I definatly think for what we do we should be paid more. It's sad if we get out of the navy or military in general and go and work in the private sector where the military pay private contractors to do what we do they get paid 3 to 4 times mor than we do. That to me is very sad. But you still have people willing to serve their country so they do this job.
