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

    Pros

    Interesting life-style. Worked in some interesting locations with some great people. Good pension scheme and excellent health insurance. Salary good if you are living in a country where you get tax free status and paid in your home country currency (not dependent on fluctuating exchange rates).

    Cons

    Treated unfairly. A lot of favouritism and cliques. Favourites and friends are promoted as they are given perfect reviews by their management friends, even when they are far from being the best candidate for the job. Having to work long 12-13 hour shifts with no breaks. Company expanded too fast and decimated work teams causing great damage to morale. Over-worked. Company uses too many inexperienced contractors that have to be trained - nice for the contractor - (free training), but awful for the employee. This company is bad for your health.

    Advice to Management

    Treat ALL your staff with respect, listen to their concerns and respond to them honestly. The last company wide confidential review was not taken seriously and most of the concerns, which many employees addressed, were ignored. Recognize that stress due to over work is a hazard. Genuinely put health and safety first - (not just on the glossy front page, but really first!). Too many inexperienced people being promoted when they are not fit for the role.
