    I worked at Ocean Beauty Seafoods as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone was very friendly and easy to get along with. Took good care of employees. Offered employee discounts on seafood.

    Cons

    Very limited opportunity for promotion. Worked for them in Alaska so there wasn't a large staff to handle pay issues or other similar problems.

    I worked at Ocean Beauty Seafoods full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ocean Beauty is a large company with great communication from the top down and bottom up. Management is willing to consider and implement new ideas. The executive team knowledgable. Ocean Beauty isn't just a company, it's a family. Kyaking on Lake Union during lunch hours. And they catch some really good fish (not in Lake Union though).

    Cons

    There aren't any cons unless you don't like to be challenged to think differently and work hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the weather better in Seattle so we can go kyaking during lunch more.

    I worked at Ocean Beauty Seafoods full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked for the Ocean Beauty Cordova Facility last summer, in that plant they mainly process pink silver and red salmon. Although the hours we're fairly long (10-16 hour days) the work was easy. You are supplied with three meals a day, and a break in between each meal. As well as laundry, cleaning service and a few company picnics here and there.

    Cons

    The facility is very hierarchy when it comes to work. Management can be very abusive of their powers, and very favorable when it comes to certain people. The facility itself is very filthy, under maintained, and lacks professionalism. It is also overstaffed to the point where hours are being distributed unfairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus mostly on productivity but keep a balance with the well-being of employees.
