    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.
