Indian Navy is a wonderful service with bright future. We all work as.a team to achieve the common purpose to meet the goal of the organisation. Teammates are very cooperative, understandably and helpful to each other. Training is at every stage of career to get promoted at every rank and improve on job skill. The job provides enough satisfaction to progress with multi sports facilities during evening sessions. The establishment is located in a secured environment both the work place of employee and accommodation for family and assures security of family at all times despite takes employee is away on duty or leave. The infrastructure provided is adequate with all facilities and Navy ensures complete care of family and children for its upbringing in all matters. Further, Navy gives ample opportunity for travel on completion of every three years on posting to new cities located in coastal areas. The latest technology are adopted with innovationin work place. The work life balance is excellent and well maintained.

Dislikes

Someimes late working hours and frequent postings which disrupts the children education.

It is proud moment to be a seamen. The atmosphere is ever cooperative, challenging and quite secure.The job is reasonably well paid, having tremendous career growth opportunity.You get an opportunity for travelling to sea shores and foreign countries as well.The seamen is well disciplined, civilized and well exposed to varients of life.Excellent proud job to a seamen.

Dislikes

The legacy of British Raj culture favouring only to officers cader frustrate a young seamen.The discrimination towards a seamen or non commissioned ranks of armed forces and biased justifications towards commissioned officer at every place may be hospital, hangout area,canteens or any place under jurisdiction of armed forces is quite undermining and humiliating to a seamen or jawan. The proportionate huge difference between the perks, privilage, promotions and allowances even even being for the same reason between officers and jawans also a irritating factor for a young man who has come from the civil atmosphere of free India.

The exposure it gives will make you stone hard to face the world. But, camaraderie, loyalty, appreciation, impartiality,a force to grow and develop is all destroyed by some group of officers. They are only bothered about their promotion and growth and for that if they have to sacrifice any or everyone they will not hesitate.

Dislikes

Don't become SSC officer. Rather become a PC officer or Sailor and you will be better with all benefits and leave after 15yrs. The Short Service Commission is the worst entry. It will use you and throw you out more than 80% of SSC officers at an age where it will not only be very difficult to get a job but the compensation after giving 10-14yrs of you prime life is peanuts. No medical, no pension and clear discrimination from permanent commission officers. So, never ever join indian Navy as SSC officer. It is better to slog yourself in private and attain much better than what you will have in Indian Navy.

Work

There is nothing free in Indian Navy you get allowance but you have to pay more than the allowance you get to maintain the standard. It is a highly politicised environment where the only way you can survive is to have a godfather from higher ranks.

The benefits have been either curtailed by govt. Or they are in much worse condition. don't believe in the advertisement of Indian Navy it is all partial lie. Only very very select few gets those opportunities shown and that too without sacrificing your family and health plus you have to have a godfather period.

It is a life time opportunity to work in armed forces such as Indian Navy. A beautiful experience if you get selected as a permanent commissioned officer. It is not recommended to join as a sailor or Short service commissioned officer as your life will be always unsatisfactory and running behind the unreachable goals set for most deserving and able candidates otherwise if you are eagerly looking for financial stability, look after your family financially and would like to bet your life irrespective of job security then you can join in any of the ranks as a sailor or short service commissioned officer. The promotion prospects for sailors is better in other armed forces(air force) and para military forces (Coast guard) comparatively as there is no restriction of service and no promotion blockage. Happy sailing to you and all the best.

Dislikes

Job insecurity and promotion prospects for sailors and officers after some stage of service.

Training is good. Job security is the best. Career Growth is Poor. There is no reward for hard work. Salary is low in comparison with the work. Work environment is ok ok (you will enjoy the thrill, adventure, sense of belongingness etc, however sometimes the same will be back to hunt you (specially when you require leave and all). Politics is about getting good review from bosses which has a bearing on promotions. Innovation is a big No. Too traditional and if you are innovative then you may land in trouble. Work Life balance is not that great. Family may have a peaceful time considering the amenities provided but you may not enjoy the same.

Dislikes

Too rigid. Leave is a problem if you really good at your work. you will only feel important when you apply for leave. Artificial deadlines are created to make your job more challenging.

Work

exciting, challenging and adventures for someone who loves the job and passionate about it. sometimes you will feel hectic too with deadlines to meet.

An excellent service which gives opportunity to learn modern technologies of the world. Provides job security and puts you through challenging tasks. Naval Officers are backbone of service and they can develop excellent organising and Team building and decision making capabilities. After enforcement of 7th Pay commission recommendations, pay & perks have also become highly satisfying.

Dislikes

Promotion policy is not satisfying. Approx. 80% of officers are not promoted to Col & their equivalent i.e. Group Capt in Air Force and Captain in Navy. Transfers are too many. Family life is disturbed.

Work

I had opportunity to work on War Ships/submarines, Naval Dockyard, Warship Building Project, IT Infrastructure Management, Director Quality Assurance, Training assignments etc. All the appointments were challenging and had free hand to take decisions.

it's very challenging and multi tasked job. All the time you will be busy in managing people and most of the time you have to be flexible to sudden changes to work schedule. you will get a lot of opportunities to grow in this work field. sometimes you will get real time war situations to perform and show your ability to handle pressure. everyday you get surprises in your daily life, you have to be alert, mentally and physically fit to complete task.

Dislikes

no not at all, but in navy it is very hard to keep balance between your social life and professional life

Work

working in nave as a mechanical engg is very hectic, most of the time you have to sacrifice your social time for professional requirements. at the same time you have to posses good managerial skills and technical knowledge to control your department,.

Nice place to work for thrill seekers. Job security is no matter of worry. Good facilities for family. Post retirement benefits are good. If ambitious, one can learn a lot about cutting-edge technology virtually for free. Mixes you with all kinds of people of India and puts you all over india. So by the end, you have really 'seen it all'

Dislikes

Scope of skill development almost nil. Navy makes us a jack of all the trades but a master of none. Nonexistent family life. Very less 'real' responsibilities and no scope for vertical growth.

Work

Work is pretty interesting as we are tasked on a new job every other day. Long sailings and long absence from family. A very robust and disciplined set of people to work with.

Its fighting force of the Indian armed forces. The joy of joining the force/ company will leave behind the perks and benefits, however it provides ample opportunities in the service as well after release from the service. The chances of going abroad and looking at the wider horizon are much more. At the end I must say it provides a satisfying and rewarding tenure. Jaihind.

Different people perform different jobs hence the training pattern is different for individual. It merit mention that the common and basic training is same as to teach them the team work cohesive functions as to aim for the final mission that is to win.
