Pros: great work environment with optimal workingn hours.

Maintenance Chief/Platoon Sergeant (Former Employee), Camp Lejeune, NC/Okinawa, JapanSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: travel, experience, accomplishment
Cons: pay
There's no such thing as a typical day in the United States Marine Corps. There's also something new and challenging going on.
I've learned many different leadership principles and styles, logistical planning and managerial properties.
I've changed through many different commands and "management" and there has been many different leadership styles. – more... Some I agree with and a lot that I do not, but I've been able to take the best out of each and create my own leadership style to optimize production and personnel moral.
In addition to the change of leadership and also rotating personnel I've had the chance to meet a giant group of diverse individuals. I'm a very open minded and patient individual so I've never had too many issues with co-workers however problems do occur. When those problems arose, they were taken care of quickly and professionally.
While in my last employment the hardest part of the jobs would have to be the placement of location and the pay. I am a very adaptable individual however so it was an easy fix. But also the best part of the job is the travel and accomplished feeling. – less
