Also, with all due respect to Stan’s son, this is an area that is HIGHLY volatile. Offshore, as is true generally with the oil and gas industry, is very sensitive to movements in the energy market, and it has not been uncommon to have a project going “great guns” with hundreds of engineers working on it one week, and the next have it completely shut down and 90% of those engineers laid off.

 

The risk/reward ratio in the Offshore business is about equal with other areas of structural engineering.

 

The Offshore business has been doing reasonably well over the last couple of years—though it is a bit slower now than a year or so ago—but that could change with the next fluctuation in crude oil prices.

See how easy it is to start a fight, when BOTH sides are right?
