It was fun at first, but I have lost faith in the organization

Operations Officer (Current Employee) Jacksonville, NC

ProsThe camaraderie and brotherhood that one experiences is here unparalleled. I have met friends for life from all over the earth; an opportunity I would never have had if I had remained a civilian.

ConsThe current administration is eager to please congressional mandates. In doing so, many Marines are feeling the brunt of injustice and inconsistant management for the sake of the leadership saying "Look, we reduced our numbers ahead of schedule". While there are creative and lucrative incentives to assit these young Marines in getting out early, there is a vast majority that are having their personal records tarnished simply because it is much easier to get rid of them through legal or administrative proceedings and deny them the benefits that are owed to them for giving up their youth.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay for the friendships and battles, leave once you had your fill.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Outstanding Institution

    Operations Officer (Current Employee) Jacksonville, NC

    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros: It is hard to describe what a being a Marine Corps ground combat officer entails. It is harder to describe what it provides. … Cons: You spend a lot of time away from your family (if you're doing your job). You work long hours and will spend most of… Advice to Senior Management: The management needs to avoid the continuing cycle of post-war micromanagement. It has plagued the Corps after each major war, but… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
