Not the same company anymore
Sales & Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Harris County, TX18 January 2019
CGG has been a very good company to work for and has provided opportunities for career progression and the chance to live in different countries. However they are exiting the marine acquisition business so I can say that the organisation will be changing.

French Company
Warehouse, Shipping & Receiving, Inventory (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX20 September 2018
Upper management mostly left us alone and left almost all decisions to our warehouse manager. The company was slow adapting to new inventory technology.
Pros
We had freedom to complete our workload.
Cons
Upper management depended on all major decisions to come from France.

Good old boy network, lack of vision
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Houston20 August 2018
The company in Houston is dictated by a good old boy culture, discrimination again women is rife. Interesting work, but promotion based on who you know not what you know.
Work hard and play hard culture, but the play part has gradually disappeared . Lots of out of hours work expected. Technology used to be cutting edge, but becoming more obsolete. Workplace culture is ok, but management quite aggressive and not open to diversity and change.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Management Culture

MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX14 August 2018
The work hours are felexible as long as you get the work done. Different sections of the company have open cubicles and other areras have offices for more private thnking. They have a strong marketing team and focus. Upper Management sometimes does not have the ability or knowledge to make the tough decisions.
Pros
Excellent Work Environment
Cons
Management does not make decisions

Passionate and dedicated People at CGG
Treasury Analyst (Dutch permanent contract) (Former Employee) –  Gemeente Amsterdam10 August 2018
Family environment, passionate people and expertise in Finance. However not very dynamic in terms of Job advancement. Finance managers are missing management skills to keep young people interested in the company. Despite a large number of nationalities among the workforce, the company culture remains very French. Almost all managers are French.
Pros
Positive environment. very dymnamic
Cons
Job advancement. Poor management in Finance. Salary.

Field Administrator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX2 May 2018
This was my first seismic job and I feel in love. Even though you work long hours seven days a week, it never felt like it and when you did get time off, you could go wherever you wanted. It was such an interesting job. I loved all the people I worked with and just had a blast!!

Great place for experience but low appreciation to its employee
Imaging Geophysicist (Former Employee) –  Asia Pasific30 April 2018
This company has a cutting-edge technology in its industry for seismic imaging because it is supported by a developed R&D. Altough, it has a great name, it has low appreciation for its employee such as low income (particularly for a certain country in Asia Pasific), no standard of salary, rarely give technical training, unclear career path, low benefit, low salary increase, demand employee to work late/on weekend without compansation.
It is recommended to stay only 1-2 years otherwise wasting your time.
