    Pros

    The leadership experience and over all experience that I had.

    Cons

    The daily interruptions for extra tasks that could have been planned better.

    Advice to Management

    Communication between company, battalion and regiment needs to be upgraded through SOP.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for growth. There is unlikely an other group of professionals who are as like-minded and unified in obtaining goals.

    Cons

    Long hours, hard work, slow promotions. The requirement to move every three years adds an additional stress to families which is compounded by deployments and training events.

    Advice to Management

    Review policies and procedures and quit being stuck in the mind set of "we have always done it that way", promote based on talent, not longevity.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and paid vacation. Great potential for growth. Great chance to expand on your level of education as well.

    Cons

    A lot of time away from family. Higher ups can be a bit overwhelming to some. Weak minds won't make it too far in this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to handle the individual as an individual. Cookie cutter management is bad for morale and hurts the institution we love so dearly

    Pros

    Met many great people. Great benefits. Money for college.

    Cons

    Military doesn't pay good. You can't go visit family without their permission. I only gave it a 4 because of the benefits.

    Pros

    The Marine Corps is an outstanding organization that only enlists the highest quality applicants theses days. There is a multitude of great skilled jobs to choose from if you don't want to go infantry and an honorable discharge looks good on any resume.

    Cons

    The military rank structure is a hard pill to swallow for some, especially if you decide to join later in your twenties. You can be assured the first few years of your enlistment will filled with taking orders. The next few years you'll still be taking orders, but you'll at least have junior Marines to delegate to.

    Advice to Management

    If you decide to join the Marine Corps, make sure you're joining for the right reasons. Also make sure to stay out of trouble because it's almost impossible to recover from these days and some of the bigger mistakes can stick with you for a lifetime.

  11. The Marine Corps provides a dynamic working environment where you will never do the same thing in the same place.
