My husband works for another big defense contracting company out there... BEWARE!
Before he left, the recruiter and some "country manager" promised him he would get a double-wide with his own bathroom, high-speed internet, and only one roommate. Well, so he gets there, is squeezed in a 10' x 12' room with three other people, no internet, no private bathroom. Best thing lately? He and his roommates were just told they're moving to a "transient room"... a room made for 2 people, but with 6 bunks to fill... and still no internet.
Oh yeah, despite living "on base", remember that snipers can see a long way if they have a good view. Turns out that most contracts in Iraq do not guarantee housing or even food--if you can believe it. Yeah, it is too good to be true. For a contract worth $1M, your husband may only see $200K + benefits of that... the rest of the money lines the pockets of these contracting companies...
Wish someone had told us what it would be like... because they made it sound too good to be true.
