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.

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.

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 – more... 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. – less

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.

Great experience
Telecommunications Technician (Former Employee), Twentynine Palms, CAAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Cross training and Health/ Medical care
Cons: Constant travel
While in service I was constantly challenged and had to adapt to not only the military life style but also the wide range of everyday job requirements. I learned many skills from field telecommunication – more... maintenance to supply/ warehouse transactions, and finally shop management which included mentoring and training personnel. I enjoyed having peers and superiors rely on me for multiple tasks because I can get the job done. The hardest part was living in the desert for 5 years but I adapted to that as well. – less

Battalion Training Chief (Former Employee), Camp LejeuneAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Esprit De Corps of fellow Marines
Cons: none
Organizing training for all the unit's Marines. Keep training records for all the units Marines. Attention to detail and long hours scanning several excel spreadsheets and training data bases but worth every minute to ensure every Marine received all the training they required because those Marines would be heading to combat.

2nd Echelon Mechanic (Former Employee), Kāne‘ohe Bay, HIAugust 25, 2015
Pros: Being a Marine was an honor in itself
Cons: not seeing your family enough
I worked on tactical vehicles mostly. Maintenance and preparation for deployment was our main priority. I learned basic maintenance on vehicles according to military standards. Our management is basically – more... dependent upon who your commanding officers might be so some were good, and some weren't ideal. Camaraderie was essential when you are in the Marines. They help you get through tough times and they celebrate the good time with you. Hardest part of the job was not seeing your family a lot. Best part I guess is I got to travel abroad and was stationed in Hawaii for 3 years. I can't complain. – less
