    Pros

    Great working environment with very highly skilled and knowledgeable people who are keen to share that knowledge. The pay was one of the best in the industry. When on the road living was considered "full and appropriate"

    Cons

    Verry large corporation that expects to get it's pound of flesh from each and every employee each and every day. As a field service engineer one spent a lot of time away from home and family.
