No opinion of CEO

I worked at US Marine Corps full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Learned a great amount of skill including teamwork, attention to detail, work ethic, leadership, independence, and did I mention attention to detail? All of which transfer ESPECIALLY if you honorably discharge first term. You can take some of the things you learn here to great lengths, especially after using that GI Bill (which is awesome).

Cons

Long shifts, strong mental (unreversable) stress, considerably less rights than a civilian counterpart, and very short, if any, lunch breaks.

Advice to Management

Your troops come first, ALWAYS.

    I worked at US Marine Corps (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, most always near a beach, great locations, and unique challenges. You learn leadership and unique job skills. Leadership responsibility grows exponentially with each new position.

    Cons

    You have to be self-mootivated. The deployment cycle and combat deployments are challenging personally and on the family.

    Advice to Management

    Always instill trust tactics.


  2. "Great job, but as in any other job it's a lot of work"
