    I worked at US Marine Corps full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility and hands-on opportunities early in one's career. Very good initial professional development. Opportunities to travel and support and learn about foreign cultures and governments.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and rigidly hierarchical. Frequent, long deployments and regular training "in the field" can become tiresome and draining, and also put strains on the individual as well as on his or her relationships external to the Marine Corps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time mentoring junior officers.

  2. Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps will pay most of your share.

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

    Pros

    Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.
    Ronald Reagan, President of the United States; 1985

    Cons

    There is nothing to report at this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Marine Corps has just been called by the New York Times, 'The elite of this country.' I think it is the elite of the world.
