some of the best reasons I work for MCCS is because better pay then the jobs located outside the marine base and we care about our Marines serving them because they serve us.
the downside of working for MCCS is they will keep you as a flex employee for years before they give you a part time or full employee positions. I believe it's because they did not like paying for taking care the employees when it comes to benefits.

Hard work is rewarded by promoting within the company. Most of the people are very pleasant to work with. Jobs become available all the time do to high turnover.
Pay is not great and raises don't really happen.

The benefits are ok. The education benefits are great only if you can stay long term and are not part of the military (have to move often) or you'll have to pay it all back. That's about it.
The chiefs spend so much time playing gotcha with each other that they pass the misery down. Everyone's more worried about how things look than what's best for the public or the employees. Harassment is institutionalized and if you got to HR they won't even look at your case. Gross misappropriation of government funds for making purchases that aren't needed that are flashy while making programs go without needed supplies. Jobs are re-categorized as lower classes so they can offer less pay than you would make in the private sector.

Ok job for starting out good for military spouses and family members if they can get in
Does not pay a live able wage for all employees in similar positions Prioritizes Management but does not support lower level employees Biased towards hiring Retired/ Veteran Marines over spouses or family members No career advancement Disregard for health and safety of staff Constantly short staffed but unwilling to pay long term employees when they are given additional work loads2
