Great Opportunity to learn leadership, experience and credentials for a job in the civilian sector.

Marine Corps Officer (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsThe best part is financial security and stability. You won't have to worry about your company's contract period of performance running out or being shaken by the economy. During your contract term, your job will be there come what may. Also, great opportunity to obtain a retirement pension after 20 years of service. Rated at 50% of basic pay for 20 years of service and 2.5% for each additional year over 20.

ConsIf you are attached to a Fleet Marine Force Unit, you are very likely to deploy in support of overseas operations. Actually, you are highly encouraged and expected to do at least one FMF tour about once every 5-6 years for career progression, which is very important if you want to make a career out of the Marine Corps. Currently, Marine Corps is downsizing the force due to draw-down but with the mass exodus, could be potential for promotions where there are vacuums.
