    I worked at CGG as a contractor

    Pros

    Surrounded by very highly qualified and technical experts who are creative and eager to find innovative solutions

    Cons

    Because it is in the oil and gas industry, it is subject to the highs and lows of the energy sector

    Advice to Management

    Listen to many of the good ideas that flow from the workers downstream. They feel that often there is a disconnect between upper management and the experts you are at ground zero

    I worked at CGG full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to technology and worldwide geology. When I was there medical and 401k were great. For some reason they were open to new ideas for uses of non-geophysical technology, I.e. GIS for one example.

    Cons

    Can be micro managed at times. Could be tight with the money also, travel and raises. Unless directly involved in sales did not recognize value of technical interaction with geoscience community.
