    Pros

    Not a bad if you can hustle, cut the right corners, and your aspirations are to stay a surveyor, or become a manager.

    Cons

    No option for less than 12 hours days. Frequent 16 hour days. Overtime doesn't happen until a weekly max hits. Hourly is very low. All your money comes from bonuses. No bonus for quality work. No incentive for innovation.
