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

    Pros

    The Marine Corps is an absolutely amazing place to work at/for/with. In the last twenty years, I have traveled all over the world, had amazing experiences, and learned a great deal about supply chain logistics, leadership, and the proud tradition of being a Marine.

    Cons

    Of course, there is the down-side. Deployments, field time, training evolutions, travel, moving every few years; all of these take away from time with your family. And, of course there have been times I've been in very dangerous situations.

    Advice to Management

    The Marine Corps has a long line of tradition and pride representing our country's best. The only advice I would have for our leaders are to keep doing what you're doing; do NOT reduce our standards to satisfy any social pressure demands.

    Great comraderie and always mission oriented.

    Cons

    I hated field days and re inspections for people that didn't know how to clean their rooms.
