    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Marine Corps has taught me many things that I could have never learned elsewhere such as loyalty, selflessness and dedication to one's country.

    Cons

    While in the service I encounter many leadership differences with others. I feel like it effected the advancement and placement of employees in my work place.

    Pros

    Travel and self discovery. By joining the Marine Corps you will find out things about yourself that you did not know you were capable of. The job can be challenging and demands the best at all times.

    Cons

    Lack of free time and high tempo environment. The restrictions that transfer over into personal life is not for everyone....

    Advice to Management

    Drastically reduce micromanaging.

  3. "Great company that you get to work with all types of people from all across the world and walks of life."

    Pros

    The people. Just like any other other job the job might sick but it's all about the people you worth with.

    Cons

    The work hours. Your up early in the morning and you are there late. But it does make the workday go by quick.

    Advice to Management

    Don't really have advice for the management just don't be someone who you are not and don't fake the dunk. Be real to yourself and your fellow Marines.

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

    Pros

    You’ll learn time management, different job fields, performance equals promotion, and gain confidence. Constantly encouraging Marines to progress their careers by sending them to advance leadership and job training courses.

    Cons

    There aren’t any cons I can think of in the US Marines. Perhaps limits to duty stations. The two main bases are on the east and west coast.

    Advice to Management

    None. Management does an excellent job at enforcing equal opportunity and is always on top of development and advancement of all Marines.

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

    Pros

    One of the coolest jobs on the planet, decent pay, and a great group of people.

    Cons

    Incentive system inside the organization is based on non-essential activities and haphazardly handled. Failure to reward superior performance leads to higher turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what is most important to you and work with your people who deliver that. I think you should care most about winning battles. When Marines have a superior record of tactical successes, give them the option to choose duty stations or schools (within reason).
