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

Pros

The leadership and technical skills are great for getting you ready for a job in the civilian world. The work environment is more like a brotherhood than coworkers.

Cons

The discipline, deployment schedule, and commitment are not for everybody. When you join the Marine Corps, you are signing over your life to Uncle Sam.

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

    Pros

    Travel, retirement benefits, and an opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself were the best attributes of my time in the Marine Corps

    Cons

    Institutional arrogance runs kind of rampant. Promotions and personal image perception are cut throat games.

    Advice to Management

    Less rank does not mean less valuable.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You live and fight for a purpose that is bigger than you. You fight for that little boy you see running around at the park with no care in the world. You fight to keep your family and your brothers next to you safe. It is your duty as an American!

    Cons

    The VA's length of time they take with disability claims.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your peers and lead your subordinates.
