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.

Nothing is individual in Indian Navy, it's all a team work.it mould a sailors in all aspects to face the worst situation and overall development of personalities. I am very thankful To Indian Navy which has openheartedely moulded me too multidimensional aspects like Storekeepers, To upkeep and maintain engineering equipment like valves, Pumps To heavy machineries like diesel Generation, compressor. Mid level management and leadership qualities development .

Dislikes

Sorry I can't say anything negative as Indian Navy has given me a lot.life is little bit tough.working in high tides, high temperature in engine room and along separation from family. But I am very happy today be part of that beautiful organisation. Even after my retirement my pension and medical facilities is looked after By that organisation .

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.

Navy as Organisation is great place to serve nation and fulfill your passion to be in forces.

Dislikes

There is serious need to review HR policy, work-life balance, work culture, career growth opportunities. I do not recommend people to join Short Service Commission as there is a lot of discrimination from initial training days to you are released after 10-14 years. Recently, they have also stopped giving extension from 10/12 to 14 years and yet they give re-employment to 55 yrs plus officers. Short Service Commissioned Officers do not get pension and medical cover so they are on their own in mid 30s. Therefore, Join only as Permanent Commissioned Officer in case of officers entry. I am third generation military personnel and have seen forces turning into job from service. Now people start thinking about promotions and next ranks from joining onward. The core strength and moral courage is depleting. Govt and bureaucrats use it to their advantage and manipulations.

Work

It depends on individual passion and dedication. One must be passionate to like it. People have also started joining it as job option and it leads to deterioration of service.

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.

Indian Navy is a wonderful service with bright future, career development and regular promotions at certain years of service. The service is all about teamwork and unity and not individual achievement. It provides ample chance for growth in one's career and gives an opportunity for travel to various places within the country in metropolitican cities by virtue of transfer after every two to three years. The salary is handsome with lot of priviledges and allowances. the work life balance is very good as it takes complete care of family and children with all the facilities within the organisation. A great and honourable service with motto of service with smile.

Dislikes

Duties well beyond working hours and transfer after every two to three years.

Work

As a Logistics/Catering/ Security Officer/ Secretary Naval Officers Mess, I was entrusted with management of Logistics, Administration, Security, Housekeeping, Hospitality & Cateringservices for 2000 troops approximately.

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.
