    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CGG full-time

    Pros

    It is good for new grads from many different majors. The good thing is that the company does sponsor H1B and green card.

    Cons

    Except that the sponsorship is good, the rest is not so good. Long working hours, the pay is not very high, work life balance is zero and management is awful. There is really no true management, tech guys also do project management. The bonus is called "by performance", actually is by the boss' opinion, if the boss does not like you in the beginning, there is no future here.
