Chinatown in Houston

Geophysicist (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsIf you are a hardworking Chinese geophysicist you have found a piece of heaven at Houston's data processing center, located right on the edge of Houston's own Chinatown.
CGGVeritas provides you an authentic Chinese cultural and work experience, without ever leaving Texas.
Most of the workers here are Chinese and you will find it not necessary to speak English, as Chinese is the predominant language spoken in the office.
Most all the top managers are also Chinese which is nice.

ConsThe processing department is run similar to Chinese sweatshops, just with better pay.
There is a revolving door of new hires coming in to replace the worn and burnt out.
Be prepared to work 80 hr weeks.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Respect and reward experienced employees accordingly. Spend time to listen to them and understand what their needs… More
