It's a brotherhood and you take it as you will. Life is good at times but stressful at others. It really depends on your unit and your leadership that you have that makes or breaks your career.

Working at the Marine Corps Exchange was a privilege. The staff was the most diverse group of people I have ever worked with in my life! Most were very kind, genuine, hard working people. Upper management could be a problem at times. It doesn't matter if we're talking about the public or private sector, if you have a bad manager that has been at the facility for years, it can seriously damage the morale of others. What do you do when you have someone with decades of experience, but makes other people, including vendors feel worthless? If it wasn't for her and the lack of pay raises, I would have retired from that job because I loved it so much.
Pros
Very diverse, great employees, granted shopping privileges, good prices, no taxes, flex scheduling, location, superior benefits
Cons
Only upper management (NF 4 & higher) are granted every federal holiday off

Great Company to work for but not compensated for daily task. Many employees have left and work load is full on employees that have had loyalty to the company but many have left because of work loads and management,

I would work there again. I did notice at times that it was difficult to move up within the organization. That is why I left, I needed an opportunity to grow as an individual and move up in my career.

During my time in the Marine Corps, I became underappreciated and underpaid for the works I provided. The Marine Corps instructed and taught a lot of life skills and will always remain as a part of myself,

There is an overwhelming culture of complacency. Low standards and lack of ambition is actually rewarded. Passionate employees with high work ethics and drive for results are shunned or run out.

I wasn't sure what to expect after retiring from the military when I began to consult for First Division with the Marine Corps, however, they welcomed me in with open arms. My most difficult challenge was learning Marine Corps speak.
Pros
Learning another branch of the Armed Forces
Cons
Learning Marine Corps speak

The Marine Corps help shape and define my character as a person and a professional. Entering at the tender age of 19, I truly learned everything about professionalism, customs and courtesies, and to have a great work ethic. By far the best organization I have ever been part of.
Pros
Healthcare, physical requirements, travel, Post 9-11 Bill
Cons
long hours, work-life balance

Over all, you'll get treated like a child no matter what age you are. You will get micro managed a lot. In order to make it you'll have to be a yes man or you won't make it far. And what I mean by being a yes man, being an butt kisser.

Take the good with the bad and learn from your experience while you are in
Pros
Paid vacation
Cons
Poor management

Amazing work enviroment, forward growth

Great career for those wishing work in public service. Can be highly stressful and can be demanding both physically and mentally. Has the blessing and curse of interacting with both the best and worst of society.
Pros
Benefits and capacity to serve the greater good.

The United States Marine Corps has a rigid leadership structure that required promotion and rank for authority over experience. Management positions are dependent on time in service.
