Intelligence Analyst (Current Employee), Camp LejeuneOctober 23, 2014
Pros: good times, valuable skills gained, high standards.
Cons: depends on your definition.
If you join the Marine Corps, you're in for an experience. Your life will change, for better and for worse, but you'll gain a lot of valuable experience that will help propel you on to bigger and better things.

Work/life balance is horrible. Your work IS your life, prepare for that. The whole "you're a Marine 24/7" thing definitely is true.

Your leadership – more... is always going to be hit or miss. As such, you'll learn to rely on yourself, which will enable you to hone your decision making skills and make you stable under pressure.

Marines are the worst and the best co-workers. You'll be at each others throats one second, then spooning in the cold the next. It is the reality of being in a business that focuses on perfecting its war fighting abilities. – less
