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

Pros

Comradery, steady pay for a comfortable living, health and dental care, tuition assistance, physical fitness programs and most of all being able to serve your country as one of the few and the proud!

Cons

Leadership can be poor, depending on your specific job it may take a long time to get promoted, if in a relationship it may be difficult on your significant other during training and deployment, waiting for word to be passed, micro management. Oh, there are also alot of budget cuts and downsizing!

Advice to Management

1. NCO's are the backbone. Give them more responsibility and less micro management. 2. Sometimes "suck it up" is not the best advice to something done.
3.Focus on Marines with family, especially the junior Marines, and make sure they are taken care of.
4. Give Marines more PME and resources for issues such as sexual health, alcohol abuse, and financial planning.

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

    Pros

    The few, the proud, the Marines... If this line doesn't give you the chills, then maybe the Marines is not for you. You will be joining the most elite fighting force in the entire world, and that alone should make you want to become a Marine.

    Cons

    You will have to do the grunt work in the beginning like you would at any other job. If you're not good with people and you're scared of managing subordinates who are 200+ pounds, then you won't be a good fit.


  2. "30 plus years in USMC with experience in maintenance, training, operations and mentoring"

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Pride, camaraderie and esprit de corps. Being able to mentor and mold young, inexperienced individuals in a positive manner.

    Cons

    Rapid deployments or long periods away from family and loved ones. Dealing with fluctuating budgets, manpower shortages and "doing more with less".

    Advice to Management

    Treat each incident separately and get to the sources of problems. Don't take anything second hand.
