I have been working at US Coast Guard full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

The mission of saving lives, protecting the marine environment, and securing the ports and waterways of the United States combined with outstanding co-workers and supervisors that emphasize a work-life balance makes the Coast Guard a great workplace. The truly Coast Guard takes care of its people.

Cons

Innovation can be restricted due to the hierarchical nature of the military and Congressional requirements on the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The cutter is the Old Guard move on or be surpassed by other agencies.

    I worked at US Coast Guard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Real, meaningful work, including saving lives, protecting property, maritime security, environmental stewardship. Small office, so everyone has a chance to contribute in multiple ways, and you can develop and stretch skills and experiences.

    Cons

    Underfunded. Understaffed. Always having to make tough trade-offs between worthy demands on limited resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more clear about the precious few priorities, and communicate them often, as it seems they change frequently, depending upon the political climate.
