    I worked at US Marine Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This was an excellent experience and great for my career. Even though I was in the infantry, many employers have been willing to interview me because of leadership experience and the excellence that USMC training exudes.

    Cons

    Poor leadership makes a world of difference. A bad chain of command makes for many unpleasantries.

    Advice to Management

    So much lies with the leadership. I was in several platoons and companies while in, each operating differently. While always combat effective, only one truly embodied the brotherhood of the Corps, which I attribute to true leadership from the company level on down.
