      Pros

      Great crew, good pay, was home 2 weeks out the month.

      Cons

      Lots of safety, lots of paperwork to do a simple task. Always looking over your shoulder. Rig managers are always afraid they are going to lose thier job and it rolls down hill. Also you are just and number and can and will be replaced.

      Pros

      Good pay. Bonuses often times and the two week on two week off schedule is nice.

      Cons

      The workplace is very military like. You are away from the family six months in a year and it's a very dirty job.
