Fantastic comaraderie

Offshore work is always, by definition, hard work. It requires long hours with little sleep, an ability to problem-solve with very little support, and the foresight to make sure that you always have what you need, when you need it, right at the workplace while still maintaining a strict budget in very little storage space. I have been fortunate throughout my career to have worked only with wonderful people, hard-working and fun-loving.

Pros

Good food, good company

Cons

Long hours far from family
