    Great company to work for

    Seismic Imager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsHigh profile company
    Company has Nice benefits for employees
    Good Training is provided
    Competetive salary
    Love working in Houston Texas

    ConsBeing client based, some projects operate under very strict deadlines. The company , especially the processing division, consists largely of immigrant population. It would be nice to have diversity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove diversity in the company. Also, I feel that clients take advantage of us sometime. They routinely ask us to follow unreasonably tight deadlines. This is the reason many supervisors and team leads are so stressed

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
