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

Pros

Great people, great mission, great experiences. They look for people who are looking for a challenge.

Cons

Challenging is good, but too much of a good thing can be a challenge. Tough on family and work life balance.

Advice to Management

Continue focus on the families.

    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 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.
