    Pros

    There's too much to list, but the Marines create professionals with outstanding leadership traits.

    Cons

    The promotion system is supposed to be fair, but really it's based on the needs of the "needs of the Corps." There are many Marines that deserve promotion and don't get it, and many that get it and don't deserve it.
