MM, I agree with Zulu. Unless you have recently been in one, you would not believe what passes for normality in a European LCC, especially if you'e a contractor. There are valid reasons to make the jump, but terms and conditions or quality of how you are treated are not amongst them. The only real benefits are if you can get a home base and the patterned rosters, but the work rate is higher as you still hit over 900 hours all summer long but doing 4-6 sector days into parochial airfields with terrain, tiny runways and aprons, minimal ATC and approach aids, often in uncontrolled airspace, onto ice rinks in fog all winter, often with a 200hr cadet. If you think it's an easier life or that you'll be treated better, you're in for a rude awakening.
