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.

    I worked at US Marine Corps (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, most always near a beach, great locations, and unique challenges. You learn leadership and unique job skills. Leadership responsibility grows exponentially with each new position.

    Cons

    You have to be self-mootivated. The deployment cycle and combat deployments are challenging personally and on the family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always instill trust tactics.
