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

Pros

Great work enviroment, surrounded by a good group of people. You get to travel the world and get paid while doing so.

Cons

Hectic work schedule, but that should be expected. Time away from family is not the best but you get paid well while away.
