    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    May travel to a lot of great places, given your job description and title. Create an option for great benefits after you serve an enlistment,... or 2, ..or 3. Meet a diversity of great people. Be a part of a different culture that society couldn't give you.

    Cons

    A great chance of being away from family members for long periods of time, due to deployments, training exercises and duty stations. While the benefits are incredible, the amount of money that military members are paid on a yearly basis, in my opinion, is exceptionally low for the amount of sacrifice they endure.

    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.
