Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee), Antarctica – November 15, 2013
Cons: salary and lack of professionalism
Long contracts but offset by the 'adventure' of Antarctica. Unprofessional work environment, both from management and coworkers. Enjoyed the job tasks but very poor pay without hazard pay or tax exemption. Salary actually decreased each year.

Raytheon is also a great place to start a career and gain a lot of experience.
