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

    Pros

    Great Friends. Great memories. You learn how to be a responsible adult.

    Cons

    SNCOs are failing. They do not listen to reason when they are wrong.

    Advice to Management

    SNCOs think they are gods. To lead you have to know how to follow. Also, the mentorship program is a joke. It gets pencil whipped each month. Also, the FitRep program is flawed. Marines who stand up for what's write are not favored. To get promoted in this world, you have to become a "Yes Sir" man.


  2. "As an infantry officer I held command and staff positions at the platoon, company, battalion, and regimental levels."

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

    Pros

    Challenging and dynamic work environment. Unparalleled camaraderie. Worldly experiences.

    Cons

    Office politics has more influence than it should. Bureaucracy often impedes operational effectiveness. This institution is gradually losing focus on its core function (infantry combat operations).

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the basics...Focus on developing a small and elite Corps. Infantry operations should be the focus.
