Approves of CEO

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.

    I worked at US Marine Corps full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people you work with are awesome. Intangible rewards (i.e. service to country). Very steady paycheck, and benefits are unrivaled.

    Cons

    Definitely not for everyone. Very long hours, field exercises, and deployments.
