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

    Pros

    Paid Leave. Visit foreign countries if you are lucky. Great friendships. Better than being homeless.

    Cons

    Marines are rewarded for getting married. bigger house, more pay, and get to skip out on other duties such as barracks/battalion/regiment duty or deployments especially if it's Thanksgiving/Christmas timeframe. Married Marines are generally the more moodier as they often have relationship troubles because they married strippers. Female Marines used to get preferential treatment but that's dying out. Leadership is largely out of touch with their Marines and have very poor communication skills. There's no wars so some parts are busy fighting proxy wars with "rebels" we supplied arms to.

    Advice to Management

    ban marriage, do not allow married people to join.

    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are good if you just do four years or retire. Opportunities are great if you have the right command and great for traveling.

    Cons

    Lower enlisted get treated like kids. If a higher rank dislikes you personally they will start a paper trail to try and get you kicked out.

    Advice to Management

    Better train the NCO's and up on leadership. Personally, I believe that even though we are all people, some need training on separating their personal feelings from the professional work space. I state that because I see if someone is disliked personally by some they are disliked in the professional environment and treated with little or no respect.
