Offshore cons:

Being away from home and missing out on all that entails
Some of the rigs can be hovels
Food can sometimes be poof

Offshore pros:

Money
Time off
Quicker career progression if you want it
Can travel and see the world with the job


Onshore cons:

If you wish to earn the level that you do/did offshore you need to work a lot of hours(generally 7 days a week for at least 10 hours) or work away from home
Working almost every day

Onshore pros:
if your working at home then you have your full social life back, in your own bed every night and with your mrs. (If working away then to me it defeats the purpose of working onshore)

thats my views, others will be different
