Company Clerk (Former Employee), Jacksonville, NCAugust 27, 2015
Pros: health care, friends
Cons: field, deployments, incompetent chains of command
I had to get out because I was spending too much time away from my family, plus the hours were getting insane....12 hours a day with nothing to do and always wondering why you are still there. I will always miss the people I worked with and all the funny times we had together. Horrible town and the people hate Marines

Difficult, mentally and physically; but overall an employer who strives to press your limitations, for the better.
S4 Logistics Chief (Current Employee), Camp Lejeune, N.C.August 26, 2015
Pros: Ability to promote.
Cons: Deployment
Thirteen years in U.S.M.C. has been challenging; mentally and physically. A typcial day is long, early to rise and late to home; however, the Marine Corps has taught me hard work, honor, brotherhood, leadership, and pride in a job well done. The most difficult, the multiple deployments. The most enjoyable, the brotherhood.

Strict work environment but also had days of unit cohesion
Corporal/ Cyber Network Operator (Former Employee), Camp Lejeune NCAugust 26, 2015
Pros: A lot of benifits
Cons: Not a lot of family time
Learned how to run and manage networks and set them up. Management expected a great deal from us on a daily basis. A lot of policies and red tape, but is to be expected of Military. The most enjoyable part of the job was my colleagues and teaching them what I knew. The hardest part of the job was time away from family and the long hours daily.

Different environment everyday
Aviation Electrician (Current Employee), Camp Pendleton, CAAugust 26, 2015
There is always something to do and the training is outstanding. There is always a comradery with all the Marines that worked together and even the ones that did not. The supervisors always looked out for the welfare of the workers while accomplishing the mission.

Extreme environment unlike any other
Gunnery Sergeant (Current Employee), Wilmington, DEAugust 26, 2015
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.

Learn to adapt
Aviation Airframe Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee), Jacksonville, NCAugust 26, 2015
Pros: Healthcare
Cons: Healthcare
Best way to explain the military is that you better learn to adapt to anything and everything. If you can do that and be okay with your life being run by someone else then your fine.

nice guys to work with depends on job

like I said it was a fun atmosphere to work in though that depends on the job that you work. I was a fire fighter with the usmc and work was kind of boring
