I was stationed in Iraq so the conditions could of been better but I was compensated well for the time I was gone.

ProsWorking overseas for long periods of time (over 330 days in year) can be benifitual for not having to pay taxes to the IRS and state goverment. R & R every 4 months.

Consoverseas its 12 hours a day 7 days a week nonstop and in a war zone. It is very difficult for people that have families back in the U.S. not having the freedom to come and go as you please on your days off.

Advice to Senior Managementnewly hired employes should have an option on some type of retirement plan. Which is not an option as a new hire working overseas.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
