    I have been working at C & C Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Big company politics; you can blend in and not be noticed as a lazy worker if you want.

    Cons

    Chance is not the CEO anymore. The Oceaneering buy-out has been a negative thing for the company as a whole. The morale of employees here is terrible. The geoscience department is garbage now that Tony George is gone. If I could go somewhere else, I would.

    Advice to Management

    We have lost any ground that we had to the competition. Figure out how to gain that back...and I don't mean by undercutting bids just to get the work.

    Pros

    Loved working for C&C Technologies. It felt like working for family. Consistent work and good team.

    Pros

    Get to travel to in treating places and work with advanced technology.

    Cons

    You never know when you'll be needed and you'll get called the before you need to travel after being off for 2 months with no notice.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees and keep them involved in decision process. Also, don't hire contractors when your employees are starving for work.

    I worked at C & C Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    + Pay is okay, when work is regular. +When you're off, you're completely off , and home all day, usually for weeks at a time. + Shipboard Work itself is usually pretty easy, and even on the boat theres not usually much to do. + Occasional international travel + Most of the other employees are pretty friendly. + Cooks on board are usually decent, at least in the gulf.

    Cons

    - Very little chance for advancement - Have to spend weeks at a time on a ship. - do not always provide enough or correct training for the job. - Work can be irregular, with long periods of inactivity, especially with low oil prices. Sometimes months long. - some international travel. - Home office is not great at communication. - Home office sometimes makes bad decisions, rushing projects and materials out... the door which don't work correctly in the field.

    Advice to Management

    I suppose you're doing your best with a bad situation, but letting people off without any work for weeks at time is not really acceptable

    I worked at C & C Technologies

    Pros

    There are many facets and specialized divisions to work for in a very small office setting, so you will most likely be on a smaller team. There was work everyday and it was a good opportunity to sharpen geotechnical skills and see real world examples of a lot of the things you would see as a geology or marine science major. Pay was about on par for the industry.

    Cons

    Other employees were very dismissive and even said they would try to run off new employees. Working space was very cramped and equipment out of date. Management was very loose, to say the least.

    I have been working at C & C Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very tight knit organization with experience and a working knowledge in the field. C&C is definitely one of the world leaders in AUV and other services. Well organized. Extremely friendly with a small business feel to it once you get to know them. It is a serious company once you peel away the Southern hospitality.

    Cons

    Things have changed since Oceaneering has purchased the company and the principal leaders of the company have now moved on. Given the current free-fall of oil and gas market, the company is subject to cuts and layoffs- as with other service related fields in this market. So there's a little instability given this transition. More of a critique of the field in its current situation. Basically growing pains in a... bad environment.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication (as best you can given the circumstances), possibly more raises and other incentives.
