Current Employee - Marine Corps Officer in Washington, DC

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Leadership Development
Personal Growth
Education Benefits
Mentorship for younger Marines
Great network for the rest of your life
Challenging organization

Cons

Mentorship and personal growth ends after 10 years. There comes a point where personal growth starts to wane and the challenges become the same no matter what level you are at. Senior officers rarely mentor and after a while are in it for themselves.

Advice to Management

Judge promotions based on leadership vice yes men. Do not get in the way of the young Marines these are the folks that we tend to get right and return to society.

    Pros

    Ample opportunity to learn and grow leadership, problem solving, teamwork, administrative, and operational skills. Only requires basic education and cognitive skills to begin training. Additional training will be provided to maximize performance.

    Cons

    Leaders primarily use autocratic decision making, which is a benefit for traditional military operations. Autocratic leadership, however, is limited in its ability to develop professionally balanced individuals.
