Back again. I'm beginning to wonder whether it is actually worth joining the RNR. I had developed an interest in the intelligence corps so I'm unsure. The vibe I'm picking up as I looked through various threads on here has been rather negative of the RNR (lack of organisation, taking a long time to issue kit, long waiting list times for training, very limited promotion prospects etc) Has made me genuinely wonder whether this would be the best option for me. I have always been attracted to the navy but from my very brief service in the RNR I saw very little evidence of what the actually did in unit. The only reason I'd be interested in joining would be to develop myself all round. If this is something not likely to happen in th RNR I think I may cut my losses. Does anyone provide any insight into this for me?
