    I have been working at US Marine Corps full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will never have a more rewarding experience than leading Marines. They will astound you with what they are capable of.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy can be stifling at times. You will spend long hours waiting on the nebulous "word". The organization is rife with inefficiency, and the "Peter Principle" is in full effect, often resulting in incompetent officers being placed in senior leadership positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the entire personnel management system. The Corps needs to completely re-think how we recruit, assign, promote, and compensate individuals. Tradition is no excuse for failing to adapt to a changing world.

    I worked at US Marine Corps full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ethics, hard work and quality people. Decent leadership.

    Cons

    Very political. If you're an officer and a general's kid my observation is that you get distinct advantages/preferential treatment that someone else will not receive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping faith with Marines and their family is more lip service than practical application.
