    I worked at Marine Corps Community Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very family oriented and understanding when it comes to emergencies. Paid time off, sick lick and direction management that understands.

    Cons

    Expect too much from what they pay. The company uses 'other duties as assigned' very loosely.

    Advice to Management

    Direct management is super....upper management isn't so much the problem but they don't know there people like they should. A requirement for upper management should be the requirement to dig in the trenches with the employees.
