    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.
