Literally okay
Mortuary Affairs Specialist (Current Employee) –  VirginiaJune 24, 2017
Work/life balance is work first then life maybe second.

Firewatch and duty never stops and always falls on your worst days.

Like haircuts? Like long lines? Either choose to go bald or suffer mortal.
Pros
Job safety for contract as long as you do nothing dumb.
Cons
You are never not military.

Pros

A lot of wasted time

GySgt (Former Employee) –  VariousJune 23, 2017
The Marine Corps is called "The Few, The Proud" for a good reason. Not everyone is meant to earn the title. But those few who do, whether they serve four years or thirty years, will never forget the feeling they had the day they marched across the parade deck at either MCRD San Diego or Parris Island and finally were able to call themselves a MARINE. Not every day is an adventure, but some of the most memorable moments of your life will be with the time you spend as a Marine.

Administrative Specialist (Former Employee) –  Camp Lejeune, NC 28542June 23, 2017
This isn't just a normal job. I would say it's worth trying, but it's not for everyone. Some people love it, and some hate it. Most just do 4 years and then get out.
Pros
pays better than anything i can get in the private sector
Cons
you are their property

AAV CREWMAN (Former Employee) –  Camp Pendleton, CAJune 22, 2017
Integrity is one culture the Marines instilled in me. From here work ethics is pretty much automatic. Leadership training a big plus. Family life was not great but that is the sacrifice we make to protect our county and what it stands for.

To each their own
Customer Service, Bartender (Former Employee) –  Miramar, CAJune 22, 2017
Management is below average if you work for food and beverage, they say one thing it will most likely get done within a 1-5 months, because they put one person in charge of so many things it is hard to get what you need for your station or if you need a change within your station. the only consistency they have going for them is not having their stuff together, it is always chaos during big events . Demand your breaks every 6 hours, make sure you get paid for your overtime.
Pros
the customers (Marines) are some of the best people you will meet in your life.
Cons
unorganized, chaotic, poor management.

The Marine Corps is not a place for everyone. Those who are strong willed and competitive will continue on through its ranks. The lifestyle is always based around teamwork and responsibility of its inner teammates.
