    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Leading Marines was by far the most challenging and rewarding experience of my professional life. Sure, flying jets was cool, but having an impact on those young lives was tremendous.

    Cons

    I finished my career in the Pentagon working on acquisition programs. It's a broken system that was enormously frustrating, but it's the reality of the system we have in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Number one is I am surrounded by the finest people I could hope to work with. My job is intellectually challenging and world changing. I have had unlimited educational opportunities, earning three masters along the way. Global deployments make it the most interesting job I can imagine.

    Cons

    Time away from family tops the list. The pending draw down has limited promotion opportunities and of course there is the standard bureaucratic nonsense like any organization faces.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold the standard, do not give in to fads or political whims.
