What don't you like about working at United States Navy?

"Since the end of the Cold War and the new war on terrorism the officers behind the desks have lost their purpose. You would find yourself working for five bosses, each one with their own agenda on how to keep their job, and promote themselves over the other four. This would lead to a run-around on important issues that needed to have split decisions made in real time and not at a later date. Often time you would encounter individuals above or below you that really didn't want to be where they were at. Their attitudes would be reflected in their carelessness for their job and for others. Eventually would find yourself watching them do nothing and others doing their job for them. Given time the atmosphere would be they couldn't do work for some strange reason. When pointed out the fact they capable to do so the most common response would be chastised the individual for rocking the boat. This system would leave commands with bodies who were just there to fill space and contribute nothing to the overall mission. If you were a hard worker this would lead to frustration and anger."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"An overhaul of the officer and Chief programs. Often time 5 or 6 individuals would have the command over two or three bodies at best. A better screening process and less billets higher up the command and more billets on the lower ends would alleviate this problem. Also enforcing the contracts of sea-shore rotation would fix the long term bottlenecks in rates and in locations."
