    Pros

    You can't find a better place to be in the good old U S of A. The Marine Corps brings life to those in need of a purpose or place in this world.

    Cons

    Full time doesn't describe the duty of 24/7, anywhere in the world, everywhere in the world.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and don't let those mother's of america screw up freedom for everybody by softening you up!!!

    I worked at US Marine Corps

    Pros

    The unit has been great, I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an IRR billet. The work is extremely flexible and interesting.

    Cons

    None from my perspective, it was a great experience. I imagine that deployments have slowed down considerably with the end of unit deployments to Afghanistan

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully the unit will continue to find good opportunities to do field work. I think the senior officers have been doing a great job however.
