    Long hours at sea, time away from home, being off the grid with little to know access to e-mail or the web.

    Pros

    Contract work lets you make a lot of money in a short period of time. This company still has some pretty good boats to work on and they seem to be expanding into new biological services which might open some interesting opportunities.

    Cons

    The company used to be really good at getting prior observers preferential contracts but a lot of the people that made working for them nice have left. Not sure what it's like now, but the NPGOP restructuring has changed a lot of things for Saltwater and it seems like they are going through a rough transition.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key.

    Pros

    Pays well and provides an adventurous job opportunity in scenic locations, great way to save up money as you have little or no expenses, can see lots of whales and marine life in the summer

    Cons

    Working on fishing boats is terrible, lots of manual labor involved, no days off, long odd hours, terrible weather conditions, sleep deprivation, etc
