    Pros

    Pay & Benefits are great but be prepared to not have much of a personal life. Great continuing education.

    Cons

    Travel is a nightmare these days and it's a 100% requirement. Long hours, lots of weekend work, little sleep, away from family a lot, and stress stress stress... and your partner better be able to handle it. By the time you add up the 80+ hours a week and divide it by the pay.....

    Continue to improve work/life fit
    Rethink the performance rating system
    Improve the was information can be shared within the organization so that you don't from scratch every project
