    Current Employee - Infantry Squad Leader in M C B H Kaneohe Bay, HI

    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No other job in the world can give you the sense of satisfaction that was felt after an important mission, knowing that you and your closest friends just impacted a group of individuals in a meaning full way. Being able to travel the world and the comradery that is shared between individuals within a squad is also beyond compare.

    Cons

    The amount of individuals who are power hungry and like to abuse it is unreal, be prepared to say no, and stick to your guns. Other wise people will likely try to run over you. The amount of time that is miss managed is truly perplexing, there will be days when you do nothing all day (when things could be done) and then are released off of work at 1930.

    Pros

    Amazing organization who instill the best leadership qualities in every Marine

    Cons

    Policy shaping of leaders in far removed places can send the best and brightest away from their ranks due to political climate.

    Advice to Management

    Take the whole Marine Concept to heart.

    Pros

    Marines become family. They know your strengths and weaknesses. They will tear you down to build you back up. If you work hard, you will achieve all the great things that the Marine Corps has to offer

    Cons

    This isn't the place for the weak. If you are they will weed you straight out. Don't get involved with it if you feel like it's not for you.

    Pros

    Great sense of accomplishment; lifelong friends; life changing experience; physically demanding; mentally demanding; chance to gain leadership experience; lots of holiday PTO.

    Cons

    Micromanagement; group punishments; inspections; deployments on a naval vessel; always trying to look busy even when there is nothing to do; boot officers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sending boot officers to the grunts; mustangs only. Stop letting recruiters target people that shouldn't be in the USMC; use common sense.

    Pros

    Promotion opportunities and you can earn benefits at the start of employment unlike some places where you must wait through a probation period

    Pros

    Challenging, exciting travel opportunities. Decent pay and great benefits package.

    Cons

    Not for everyone.Must be determined, physically fit and ready to accept difficult challenges. Frequent moves.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in education and training and slow the procurement of new technical equipment. New equipment is fielded before the existing equipment has been mastered or used to its full capabilities.
