Pros

Depending on the region, you can get ideal work schedules (2 weeks on, 2 weeks off). This free time to do whatever you want (travel, etc).

Cons

Family life/Social life can take a hit when you are working in the field. Can be moved transfered between regions at the blink of an eye.

Advice to Management

Give engineers more of a notice before transfer.

    A good place to make money and get experience, at the expense of your health and personal life.

    Pros

    Amazing training at the centers world wide. Always an interesting group of guys (mostly men). You get paid very well. The outdoor work is enjoyable.

    Cons

    NO work/life balance. No set work schedule. Can be out on jobs for a week without returning home. Incredibly hard to stay healthy with proper nutrition and work outs (half of time we would be eating out of local gas stations).

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers who are able to actually motivate their staff rather than managing through fear and intimidation.

    Pros

    Big organization, travel was nice in the good days

    Cons

    Excessive cuts during the recession... things are only just beginning to come back

    Advice to Management

    Have a 360 degree appraisal process, not just top down
