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

Pros

Experience in the Marine Corps is just amazing. You can really learn so much about the military life and how it can effect you in good and bad way.

Cons

Working hours can get really long, and sometimes you have to work out in the field, even if it means it's cold or raining.

    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You gain a sense of belonging, pride, and leadership. You know that you have made a difference.

    Cons

    Very high pressure. Can be hazzardous to your health and the nature of combat exposes you to a high probability of injury or death.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lose sight of the fact that the lowest ranking Marines are the ones who fight the fight and win the battles.

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

    Pros

    Good dependable pay and benefits, see things and go places many others never get to see.

    Cons

    Have to leave your family behind for long periods of time, usually a higher number of things you're going to hate doing vs. the things that are going to be fun and exciting.

    Advice to Management

    N/A never made it up the ranks high enough to be in the position to advise the management.
