All depends on supply and demand, and the state of the job market.

Fun aside, I wanted to know the negatives and positives of being a 100% travel technology consultant.

Frankly tell you, for the first few days you will be enjoying, but after 1 month, you will feel that it would be better to seat in office and work.

Agreed. I did about 25% travel for about 2 years. The first 6 months were interesting -- different locations, hotels, resturants, car rental, people, etc. After about 6 months, I really wanted my own bed, home cooked meals, catching up on fix up stuff around the house, and most importantly, friends and family.

Travelling consultants generally get paid 40-100% higher then employee type position ( talking about big names like Microsoft , Oracle , BEA Systems types ) . These position involves constant skill upgradation , great soft skills . On the flip side you away from your family and have less of personal time .
 
You totally ruined the moon. You're gonna hafta pay for that you know. This tiny ad agrees:
