Field Engineering

Over the past couple of years I have gotten several calls/emails from recruiters asking about field engineering jobs for steam turbines, combustion turbines, generators. Is there a huge demand right now for field engineers in this field? It seems so. Despite the seemingly high demand, some field engineers in this industry have told me to stay away if I can help it. They said some of the USA assignments are okay but overseas assignments can be bad…many months away from home, certain areas require that you be under armed guard protection, no more tax advantages to working overseas, etc. I think one of the particular engineers got paid straight time for his overtime work and I had to pay for expenses himself and get reimbursed afterwards.

Is there anyone one this thread that has worked at a single location and decided to go into the field? Is there any incentive for doing so?
