Benefits: Medical, Dental costs around $100/month or so. 401k matched up to 7%. Good pension plan. 15 days PTO + holidays + sick leave + flex/comp time.
What's the job like?: Wide range of options depending on what your specialty within geophysics is and what size company you work for. The oil industry is a very fascinating place to work on many levels. I'm currently working an area which has just been claimed by a different country! How many jobs do you have to deal with fun things like that? Geophysics is more specialized than Geoscience or Geology so you're more than likely expected to be/treated as an expert, even right out of school with a MS.
Would I recommend the career to others?: In a heartbeat. Just make sure you enjoy mathmatics/physics. With all the software we have there's very little 'number crunching' or real math unless you work in a research position. I work applying geophysics for business purposes so you just have to have an underlying understanding of the physics involved. It's not at all like taking a physics or math class in college where you solve problems all day.
Why you should be required to speak English for employment
I tried to buy liquor at a Costco in Miami; the cashier didn't speak a word of English and after looking at my ID she refused me service; I'm 24. She kept talking in Spanish and pointing at a sign:
"You must be 18 to purchase tobacco products. We will ID if you appear under 30.
Finally the hispanic woman in line behind me said I had to be 30 to buy alcohol, and they both crossed their arms and waited for me to leave
