    Pros

    Great experience, interesting people, a wide variety of work to build new and different skill, a chance to really get out of your comfort zone and explore new aspects and cultures of the US and disaster preparation and recovery.

    Possible conflicting personalities within the team, some may not be use to living off a budget and or stipend, can be a bit difficult to secure a position for more than one term.

    As always more preparation and research into projects and sponsors beforehand is always appreciated.
