    incompetent senior personnel, extremely difficult on family, lot's of b.s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions need to be seriously reconsidered, complete idiots that are horrible at their jobs are being put into high leadership positions which in return wrecks decent men and women's careers.

    I have been working at US Marine Corps

    Pros

    - Leadership experience
    - Unrivaled benefits
    - Highly competitive pay
    - Free medical
    - Opportunity to travel and deploy
    - Potential for some really exciting challenge such as...combat.

    Cons

    After an exciting intial tour, stand by for any number of mindless staff jobs. There is little room for creativity in many places and there is so much resistance and friction towards change. If you do a second tour, pick very VERY carefully. Even then it probably wont be very exciting or rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually do human resources! Track skill sets and education of the total population and assign people based off of that. Allow more flexibility in assignments. At headquarters please fight the tendency to hire retired Majors, LtCols and Cols and allow them to sit in their cubicles collected a pension and GS-12 to 15 pay to surf facebook or build their own little fiefdom of other retired office chair warmers.
