What do people think. I personally don't like it when people run down the RN all the time. Industry take a short cut and entice engineers out instead of training their own
I would add to Dapper's comment that it shows how desparate things are getting, My word they'll be after getting Crabs to transfer next.
I did 22 years in the Army lots of tours they were tough. The Navy is tough but I wouldn't want to do anything else I've done back to back tours crash drafted it's just how it is. I think there's to many wingers. I've seen people take 1 hour stand easys do three day weeks and still moan. I think there are a lot of soft weak senior rates that spread the rot
should have done something about the problem 5+ years ago. Even then, it was still a problem
being an engineer in the Navy is weird. You are expected to manage a huge amount but only being a chief allows you to make a decision on your own. Which is turn, creates much more work for the Chiefs.
the work load is incredible.
