I have not worked for them, but been on their vessels and know many people who do. If you talk to the employees (many of whom have been there 10, 20, 35, and from what I hear in one case 50 yrs) you get a sense that it is a company that really gets it and knows how to treat their employees. There are instances of other companies where the employees will go on-and-on about how great the company is - but it is obvious they are not allowed to say anything different than that. I don't believe that is the case with OC. Put it this way - if my son were looking to go to work in the Gulf - I would strongly recommend he try to get on with Otto Candies. Nice vessels. Safe and professional crews.
