Character traits of Oedipus and Odysseus?

I have to write an essay of who I would rather work for; Oedipus or Odysseus. In order to write it I need to know what both of their character traits are so I can pick one. Please include both positive and negative traits for both, preferably that pertain to having a job with one or the other. (i.e. I wouldn't want to work for someone who would kill me for making a little mistake, or making sure I would get paid on time..) Thanks!
