    I have been working at CGG full-time

    Pros

    Very flexible hours. They know that life happens, and are very understanding when issues arise they may require you to be late/leave early/call in. Excellent benefits. My wife works in the medical field and can't believe how good our insurance is. Very blessed to work for this company.

    Cons

    Oil price is down, causing the company to tighten its belt and cut fat. No raises this year and many were laid off. The company does a good job at taking care of everyone though.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of employees believe in this company and are working hard to help keep it afloat and viable. This faith and perseverance should be aknowledged and rewarded when the market improves. I talk with many employees who have good ideas that may prove to be helpful. I think if the company utilized a platform to tap into this knowledge it could be a significant source of inspiration (read: cost savings/process improvement)

    What a great company. Such a fantastic, positive environment with forward thinking, friendly management and HR who actually socialize with the non-management workers. A big focus on progression and growth for individuals.

    Sometimes becomes a "campus is my world" type of place with the on-site cafeteria. Hard to get to (but it is Houston).
