I worked at WesternGeco

Pros

They will just throw you right in until your training period starts. Excellent place to start for fresh undergrads with only a B.Sc.

Cons

Don't pay competitive salaries for graduate students. Expect 3 years before you reach grade 11 pay. Good chance you will become overly specialized in one or two areas.
