    Pros

    The benifits package and the ability to get promoted by knowing and doing your job is a great way to help make more reliable civilians

    Cons

    The marine corps is not a place to raise a family with the constant deployments your family grows without you being able to see it.

    The toughest yet most rewarding job I will most likely ever have.

    Current Employee - Captain in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at US Marine Corps

    Pros

    The chance to lead Marines. The opportunities available to seek self improvement. The opportunity towear the Eagle Globe and Anchor.

    Cons

    The sacrifices made particularly with regard to family. The difficulty and at times altogether complete inability to plan ahead when it comes to personal goals outside of the Marine Corps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The long term rate at which Marines are performing although admirable is unsustainable. Improvements with regard to educational opportunities as well as dwell time with family between deployments would target two problems.
