If you pick a non-combat MOS, expect long hours and monotony. if you pick a combat MOS. expect stress, sadness, reward, since of honor. Very Physically demanding. Must be able to take Orders from peers.

    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Comradery, steady pay for a comfortable living, health and dental care, tuition assistance, physical fitness programs and most of all being able to serve your country as one of the few and the proud!

    Cons

    Leadership can be poor, depending on your specific job it may take a long time to get promoted, if in a relationship it may be difficult on your significant other during training and deployment, waiting for word to be passed, micro management. Oh, there are also alot of budget cuts and downsizing!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. NCO's are the backbone. Give them more responsibility and less micro management. 2. Sometimes "suck it up" is not the best advice to something done.
    3.Focus on Marines with family, especially the junior Marines, and make sure they are taken care of.
    4. Give Marines more PME and resources for issues such as sexual health, alcohol abuse, and financial planning.
