Silverbullet told me to post my question here instead of PM.

I'm considering an OCONUS position with PGI ( and would like to get a feel for the current opinions guys in the industry have of this company. Posts about them are a bit dated and I'm looking for current information.

Good company? How do they treat their folks? I'd appreciate all honest opinions and feedback.

Thank you

PGI is good to go.
I was born my papa's son
When I hit the ground I was on the run
I had one glad hand and the other behind
You can have yours, just give me mine
When the hound dog barkin' in the black of the night
Stick my hand in my pocket, everything's all right

Good company. Good reputation. Good people. and executing some pretty good contracts.
That which is ready to fall deserves to be pushed.

Great company with great people running it and from experience some of the best guys out there to work with. Never had a problem with pay, travel, or scheduling of rotations.

I love this site.

Where else can you go with that type of question, and receive responses from people who actually know what they are talking about?

I'll echo the responses here. If you get a chance to get on board with them, I'd take it. I gave up contracting almost 2 1/2 years ago, and they're one of the few company's I'd consider going back over for.
