Pros

The Marine Corps developes leadership and an esprit de corps that is unmatched anywhere else I have worked. It has provided me skills and mental toughness to work under austere environments with a can-do attitude. The Marine Corps also provides training in many areas and can prepare people with much needed skills that can be applied to a successful and profitable career in the civilian sector. Honor, courage, and commitment is the Corps' trademark; values in which I live by.

Cons

While I agree with the intent of the height/weight standards that are currently in affect, I believe the Corps is doing itself a disservice by making it difficult for those Marines who are are above their maximum ht/wt to continue to have a successful career, yet are still able to pass all the physical fitness and uniform standards.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat all Marines with firmness and fairness, without prejudice and your Marines will follow you wherever called upon.

    Pros

    Learn EVER leadership skills (if you apply your self). VERY rewarding. Get a get since of satisfaction, and gratification, with each Marine you affect.

    Cons

    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.
