Pros: Culture, Medical Dental, Career Opportunity, PTO 30 days, Federal Holiday(s) off, travel
Cons: Subject to National Level Politics, Rare Cases of Toxic Leadership, Work/Life Balance can sometimes be hard for extended periods (but it is the nature of the job)
There is no typical day at work, everyday you will be challenged and your performance will affect all those around you, as well as many people you may never meet.
The Marine Corps will provide a vast amount of opportunities for the individuals willing to take responsibility for themselves and exercise initiative and good judgement.
NOTE: As with any position you will be challenged with red tape and politics. You will be held accountable for your actions at all times.
Ultimately, the Marine Corps is what one makes of it, millions attempt become Marines but few will make the cut.
The culture is unlike any other you have or ever will experience; Once a Marine Always Marine. You will become part of a legacy which pre-dates the founding of the USA and has served with honor and distinction around the world since 1775.
