    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great friendships and bonds. Great experiences. Your specialty is less of a concern over the title Marine, unlike many of the other services. Shared common bond. Good benefits in the long-term. Global name recognition. Great uniforms. Focus on physical fitness and marksmanship. Somewhat of a focus on education (military history).

    Cons

    Lots of opportunities to get killed. As a new-join (officer and enlisted); physical fitness, marksmanship, and demonstrated leadership are all that is required to get promoted. Your level of education doesn't really matter. Very political at the higher ranks; no good idea goes unpunished when you happen to cross into someone else's 'lane'. Accountability is preached, but not really enforced at the senior enlisted and officer level. Segregation between ranks...even during off hours. Families (especially spouses) play this 'clique game, too. Bias against women, despite briefings and gender 'norming'.

    Advice to Management

    Keep our honor clean. It will never be perfect, but our Corps is better than all others.
