    Pros

    You will never find a job that is more rewarding. As a United States Marine, you will be able to accomplish things that you never thought you could. Great job security if you perform well, and the benefits (housing allowance, education, health coverage) are exceptional!

    Cons

    You can count on long work days, some weekends and holidays, and lots of time away from you family due to deployments, but all of this comes with the knowledge that you are accomplishing something that very few people ever do.
