    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Oceanside, California

    Full medical is a blessing and a curse. Great because it doesn’t cost anything but the quality of care is obviously not the best. Blended Retirement System is not a great deal and the days of a 20 year pension are gone.

    Best thing is everything is free.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Camp Pendleton, California

    Benefits are great while you’re in and great while you’re out! Giving to school now and being paid to do it!

    No cons, this place is an amazing place to work.

    Great benefits. Dental, Medical, etc. Everything I needed, the Marine Corps provided in terms of health and wellness. For single (unmarried Marines living in the barracks) Marines specifically, there were a lot of assistance programs that would help with flights home in an emergency, trips with fellow single Marines. At one point I wanted to quit smoking and the base I was on provided trained professionals, including a nurse practitioner, to aid in the quitting process. The Marine Corps certainly provides ample opportunity for young, single Marines to maintain physical and mental health, at no cost to the Marine.

    The best thing is you have good benefits, medical, dental, and leave days.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Officer in Eglin AFB, Florida

    There are two options. A hybrid 401k/pension plan or just a pension plan after 20 years of service.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Honolulu, Hawaii

    Very little mentorship because I feel into an isolated billet. Despite constant request for training and mentorship I was always last pick for opportunities. Didn't even work with other Marines.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former 2311 in Twentynine Palms, California

    the legacy retirement is no longer available to new employees, Money is removed from your pay for food and housing

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Infantry Sergeant in Camp Pendleton, California

    If you're infantry, chances are you won't have access to real doctors for medical concerns. There is a stigma that you're weak or trying to get out of work if you get seen at a clinic and the people that you will most likely come in contact with will have basic knowledge and that is highly specialized in combat life-saving. For 3 years, I was diagnosed and treated for muscle spasms to find out 1 month after leaving service it was 2 torn discs.
