Working in the Indian Navy was a way of life
Operations Officer (Former Employee) –  Multiple locations21 October 2016
I have learnt multi-tasking in stressful situations and how to infuse discipline & maturity gained through experience and offer varied perspective in handling new situations.During my armed forces career, I have gained tremendous experience in Human Resource Management and Operations in highly challenging environment and also involving high tempo of operations. I have been posted onboard many warships including aircraft carriers which had a compliment of more than 1500 personnel.
The hardest part of the job was separation from family for prolonged duration and the most enjoyable part was to lead a team of highly motivated individuals who were willing to walk the extra mile for fulfillment of mission for the sake of our country.
Pros
Excellent culture and traditions
Cons
Prolong separation from family and a highly steep pyramidal structure for promotion

Electrical Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Mumbai, Maharashtra16 February 2017
Life in the navy was very challenging and equally fulfilling. it shapes an individual with essential skills required to conquer the world. the day starts very early and interesting part is that sometimes it extends beyond 24 hours without even feeling tired. thanks to the comradeship that exists in the forces. it really never mattered to me if the job in hand was mine or belonged to someone else as long as completing it is concerned. the teamwork was always there to be seen.
Pros
Job Security, Free food, clothing and accomodation, a safe and secure environment for the sailor and his family.
Cons
Long sailings, no communication with friends and family for days together.

Challenging
Operations officer (Former Employee) –  Mumbai6 July 2016
The job of a Naval Executive Officer is challenging and tough. From Human resource management to Supply chain management, the Military services exposes individuals to all facets of management.
During the ab-initio years life is tough and challenging owing to prolonged separation from families, but it gets better with time. The hardest part of the job is bureaucratic issues, as it takes a long time to execute commercial projects which means that one has to have a lot of patience and perseverance to pursue and complete projects.
Learning is a continuous process and the Navy ensures that all Officers remain updated with latest advancements in technology.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the camaraderie the people share despite their cultural, linguistic and religious backgrounds.
Pros
Various perks and privileges
Cons
No set routine. One can be called upon anytime of the day or night.

Middle Level Manager (Former Employee) –  Mumbai, MH9 January 2016
I joined Indian Navy as an apprentice. Did my 04 yrs diploma in elec. engg. and was posted on board. I served for 20 years including training period and took premature retirement in 2009. Indian Navy is a wonderful service. It is full of adventure and full of life. A very wellfare and secured job anyone can have.
To sail in a war ship is very adventurous and keeps you fit to fight any adverse situation in your life. I learned to accommodate with people from different regions and languages. Learn to survive in any hard circumstances. Management gives you all the opportunities to explore in your career. Co-worker are very adjustable and comfortable to work with. Hardest part was the basic training and most enjoyable time used to be during at sea doing maintenance job and keeping the systems perfectly OK.
Pros
Welfare oriented
Cons
24*7*365 days on duty.
