Pros: Pride, service, brotherhood, leadership, training, adaptability
Cons: Pretty much everything else
The Marine Corps is not for everyone. Hours are whatever is required, supplies are sometimes limited, failure is not accepted, family events are secondary to the requirements of the Corps, training is demanding and difficult. These shortfalls build adaptability and strength. Marines will look out for one another long after their service is completed. With all of the negatives, the pride of service in the world's most feared and trusted organization of warriors is beyond explanation.
