Senior Leadership "lost at Sea"
There is a leadership manual in Defence called ADDP 00.6 It is informative, well written and concise. Clearly, very few of Defence Senior leaders have ever read, much less implemented the strategies outlined in this document . The majority of so called "leaders" are self centred politicians who strut around with a veneer of competence yet in the main are abject failures in most facets of management. They do their subordinates a grave disservice and they are detrimental to the service.

Good Experience
The best career I’ve ever had. It’s a huge learning process which was exciting and I recommend it for school leavers and unemployed to apply for positions their interested in as many avenues to look into which will benefit you.

Officer in Canberra ACT

Lost sight
Signature Behaviours and values are rarely, if ever demonstrated by Senior Leaders and Managers. Senior Officers are so far out of touch with their people. Most only interested in personal progression through ranks at any cost to achieve Rank, Posting or Job regardless of competence or damage caused. Organising "favours" for associates or "quid pro quo" .Backside covering constantly and distrust of Leadership. Appalling treatment or neglect of subordinates

Not recommended - The time spent on an initial enlistment could be better used to finish a degree, TAFE diploma or an apprenticeship.
A collection of some of the worst people I have ever worked with. Zero civilian qualifications, if you don't make the time and effort to study on your own time, you will leave your RAN service with NO recognised qualifications.RAN culture, is well, horrid. Nepotism is rife (especially in the Communications Information Systems world), promotions are not based upon merit, more on "who you know". If you are a single member (i.e. no spouse or children) expect to be continuously at sea with minimal relief and be reward for your efforts with terrible posting locations (why move a family to Darwin when they can dump single members there for their entire career).Free medical and dental is not even worth it. With generally higher wages found in the civilian market you can easily afford base packages if you desire to have private medical insurance. The same applies for rental assistance.Travel, if you have never travelled it can be a novel experience. However, expect to be treated like a child with the amount of restrictions they place upon you when berthed in a foreign port.
