We turn geophysical data into actionable information. Our internationally acclaimed subsurface imaging centers apply innovative methods to get the most out of potential field, borehole seismic and surface seismic data. Specialty algorithms cope with extremes of structure, velocity contrasts and anisotropy while imaging subsalt reservoirs, heterogeneous shale plays and bypassed hydrocarbons in mature fields. 4D processing identifies changes over time in fluid, pressure and stress. Broadband processing draws out thin beds and small sedimentary traps. Project output ranges from feasibility studies to interpretation and reservoir characterization-ready volumes

Everyone that gets a call from this company, just know that they are a scam. They took me for $2800. I had questions and with all my research that I did I thought they were legit. I should have gone with my gut. The interview process was the weirdest I have ever been through. i'm an intelligent person and they actually fooled me. I really should've known better. If it sounds to good to be true it is. They sent me a check and I deposited it to give to a vendor for the equipment that was needed to do the job. They insisted on there own equipment, because of confidentiality. I did my research and the website was great. There were more happy employees than unhappy. I did question it all the way through and they were so convincing. They asked me to deposit a check and send to their vendor for the equipment. I did it. Than they let me know it wasn't enough. They sent me another check. I asked about why they didn't just send the money to the vendors themselves, and they said I'd get the equipment faster this say. After the second request to deposit another check I called the bank the first check was drawn from and found it was fraudulent. Please don't anyone fall for this scam. They are good. The website looks totally legit.
Pros
none
Cons
scam

It was a pleasure working for CGG. The company has many benefits for the employees. The only thing is that they are not very fast at taking decisions and it can be very bureauchratic sometimes.

The pay may be good but a fair work-life balance can be difficult to maintain.
There's plenty of free food available plus an on-site cafe.so that you don't need to leave the office.

Some of the people are friendly and helpful.

The layout is open plan, supposedly to foster team discussion, but that doesn't work well.

This is a slave camp. you have to work to 8 pm everyday to secure you job. If you have green card, if you can find another place to work, go there. Any company is better than CGG.

It is a great company to work for, except they lay off people so easily.
But it was a very nice place. Good and nice people. Vey nice offices and location. Technology is good enough but they have relatively small software department, so you cannot compare with the tech capacity and advance of big companies such as JPMorgan.

but need to work like a bee.
learned all about the legacy code in Fortran 77 in their private framework, not much growth being a SDE.

poor management, your boss is the boss.

most enjoyable of the job is free lunch.

Loved my time working for CGG marine. 21 years offshore, but poor upper management decisions resulted in the company selling the marine division. As a manager on a seismic vessel I had the authority to make decisions autonomously. Work schedule was 5 weeks onboard / 5 weeks off.
Pros
Travel / good benefits / fair wages
Cons
Stressful / poor upper manangment

Travail parfois dur physiquement et qui peut comporter des risques selon les terrains et la situation politique des pays prospectés.
L'entreprise a une politique de sécurité très pointue qui pallie largement ces risques.

Le prospecteur a la vie belle puisqu'il est nourri et logé et gagne très bien sa vie
