    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 ManagementAdvice

    Give engineers more of a notice before transfer.
