    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time

    Pros

    Cameraderie, mission focus, outstanding organizational standards and leadership

    Cons

    Move a lot, hard to establish roots. Long-term friendships and mentor relationships are long-distance. Hard for spouses to have a career focus unless they are in a very mobile profession (nursing, teaching, etc). Even then, it is hard for them to move up in an organization that only sees them being around for a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to implement so many programs! Commands can only handle so many ancillary programs and still remain focused on accomplishing the mission. These programs usually come about as a reaction to some negative news story, take up a lot of time, and yield very little other than saying we "trained" someone on sexual harassment, suicide prevention, driving safety, "culture of responsible choices", intervention training, force preservation councils, substance abuse, etc. Leadership should evaluate all the programs out there, and eliminate all but those we can reasonably expect to manage at the command level.
