Poor family life, stressful but with good salary and other benefits

Poor family life, stressful but with good salary and other benefits. Officers posts are comparatively better. Secured future with lot of sea life. Don't expect much and keep working. Growth is time scale and most of the time it's not on the basis of merit but on the basis of caste. Reserved category get priority in promotion.

Pros

Free medical, canteen, ubiform

Cons

No old pension, stressful life

I am ready to do any kinds of job.

My working hours was 9am to 6pm in Indian Coast Guard. But the distance between my home and the office was too much. I learned computer basic, Photoshop, Typing, Football and Drums. I have no experience about any kinds of management and co-working and hardest part of the job. I enjoy all the day during in my work, if I seemed the job is appropriate for me.

Pros

As vacant in your office.

Cons

10am to 6pm.
