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

Pros

Number one is I am surrounded by the finest people I could hope to work with. My job is intellectually challenging and world changing. I have had unlimited educational opportunities, earning three masters along the way. Global deployments make it the most interesting job I can imagine.

Cons

Time away from family tops the list. The pending draw down has limited promotion opportunities and of course there is the standard bureaucratic nonsense like any organization faces.

Advice to Management

Hold the standard, do not give in to fads or political whims.

    Pros

    They pay for your funeral if you are killed at work even if you are not receiving a paycheck from forfeiture of allowance.

    Cons

    They charge rent even when deployed. If you are living in a mud fighting hole they take and keep your Basic Housing Allowance if you have no dependents.


  2. "It was ok, not really a job, but a commitment."
