Salary and benefits are great but, getting an indeterminate posting is virtually impossible outside of the very remote communities.
Pros: amazing people and places.
Cons: crazy expensive to get out to visit far away family and friends.
The geography and scenery are spectacular and the salary and benefits are amazing. This is all used up though, paying utilities and buying decent groceries. Thankfully the people Up Here are kind and generous and more than willing to share and help out.
