The Marine Corps is an amazing place filled with several advantages. The Marine Corps is more than a job it’s a life style that takes dedication and motivation. You get as much out of your time there as you put in meaning you give it your all everyday the Marine Corps will invest in you and you will be successful. Along with that they offer the best medical and dental and vacation benefits than any other job available.

The United States Marine Corps was a great stepping stone.
The Marne Corps was the perfect stepping stone for me because it challenged me and made me a better man. The experiences I had while in the service helped me become more independent and responsible especially when i got promoted and became a supervisor.

Low pay & unrealistical performance expectations
Incredible mission & opportunity to support our Nation’s military & their families but the work environment was extremely stressful & management had unrealistic expectations regarding the workload especially with many staff vacancies.
Pros
Good healthcare coverage & opportunity to promote
Cons
Unsupportive Leadership. Too much work with not enough focused time to accomplish tasks.

Challenging and Rewarding
The Marine Corps was always a very challenging and yet mostly rewarding career. There is unlimited potential in advancement. The benefits are second to none. Once transitioned out of the Marine Corps, it is very easy to take advantage of the education and job assistance programs.

Demanding yet rewarding
Overall my experience with the Marine Corps was enjoyable. Long work days with demanding job tasks but overall a good employer. Management can be difficult to work with but they ensure you are trained and prepared for the tasks at hand.

Something different
Definitely for outdoor people and people who are looking to challenge themselves. If I didn't get injured, I probably would have been a lifer. Definitely not easy, but makes you stronger.
Pros
Excellent benefits after 20 years
Cons
Injuries

Work was always something new/
A day in the marines consists of getting up at 5:30 am for physical training. The work day never had a set schedule to be released. You could be sitting there doing nothing for hours waiting to be released.

Life
Life as Marine is hard and very demanding. They expect a lot from you and demand many things. The benefits are great along with many other things. Depending on your job or MOS promotion is hard as well.

Overall the best job i have or will have
The marine corps isnt just any old job. It's a life style. It's for sure not for everyone. If there is a certain job you want make sure you get it in writing from your recruiter. I met some life long friends and got to go to many different place.
Pros
Great benefits, able to serve your country, travel
Cons
Lots of hours depending on m.o.s.
