    I have been working at TGS-NOPEC (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Incredible stability , great people , good technology , great multi client business model and geoscience data. TGS provides a good work for seismic veterans and new hires.

    Cons

    Poor in depth understanding oil company clients, poor training opportunities for senior employees. If you are a mid level professional, creative and motivated this may not the best fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    People are not resources.... they are your company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the sales staff. They do not know how to sell or develop new business. They only know how to answer the phone.
    Eliminate promotions awarded by favoritism
    Start over with sr mgmt team
    HR should be there to assist staff on development, not walk the floor to see who is chained to their desk.

    Pros

    401(K) Match,
    Competitive Salary,
    Relaxed environment,
    Free food,
    Vacation

    Cons

    The team which I was a part of had a very poor management. Moreover boss showed favoritism towards team mates even though their performance was not at all up to the mark . Too much politics within the team . Good work was never appreciated . Manager couldn't handle inter team conflicts. Manager left us on our own to hear the nasty comments some employees from other teams had to say. Overall , it was the worst work experience so far that I have encountered in my professional career.

    Advice to Management

    Equal treatment to all employees . Value good work .
