Royal Australian Navy selected this as a representative review
I've thoroughly enjoyed my career in the Royal Australian Navy as it is a challenge every day. You meet many different people and have many friendships. I would highly recommend it to any one who wants to travel around Australia and the world.
There is a great satisfaction from working within, and leading a high performance team. A team that strives to deliver the best outcomes possible in a competitive environment. The ADF helps an individual to discover their leadership and communications skills, and provides an excellent opportunity for them to develop personal, technical and management proficiencies in a workplace that encourages diversity and innovation. There are many opportuntities to contribute to the defence of Australia, and serving in the ADF is one that brings together many people in many challenging roles from a range of different backgrounds to build a team that strives to overcome adversity.
There are always good and bad, however, in the navy people are not promoted on talent or skill. They are promoted due to whoever is available. Therefore management is often terrible. When at sea there is no balance between work and just being a person. and the drinking culture is dangerous.

It took me a number of years to realise, but this organisation is an embarrasment to "Military". The discharge date is higher than ever and continues to grow. If you take one thing away from reading this, look into other careers. I have 7 years of experience as a technician, and have decided to move onto better things.
I don't know why I have to write about this. There's a reason I resigned, and its really none of your business. The don't care about your mental health, your personal life, or anything about you really. You'll always be a number to them, and you're easily replaceable.
I would never allow any of my children join the navy its full of teasing ,physical and mental abuse, drug addicts ,a bad culture of not being able to seek help without jeopardizing your career ,and if anyone finds you different or vulnerable in anyway you get teased and bullied in your workplace which being in the navy means your workplace is also your home NO ESCAPE from constant humiliations
In the Royal Australian Navy a typical day consist of conducting PT session from 0730-0830 and then be at work at 0900. logging onto your computer and checking any emails that may have been sent to you. conducting any work that has been set out for the day. I learnt how to build resilience and work in a team. Always iron your uniform and to have great time management skills. The hardest part about my job was being so far away from family for a very long period. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new people and growing a connecting with people so rapidly. Being able to work together to achieve anything and always encouraging everyone to do their best.
It was a learning curb and influential part of my life. I learned enormous amount of life skills and hand skills. It is an ideal place for young people to apply for and learn sills, make friends and experience different opportunities. It was a job that was demanding and needed a team effort for a successful outcome.
Seperated from my husband
Military service with good benefits and reasonable salary, depending on your role within the Navy it can be relatively relaxed or fast paced. I would recommend for life experience and professional development plus oppurtunities to do things that no other workplace can offer.
