Is it just me or are LinkedIn posts from staff of a certain bankrupt French former-seismic acquisition company becoming a little pathetic? It seems the boss man (or lady) has instructed all junior staff, with no knoweledge of the industry, history... — read more

The fact that CGG can go the market and get cheaper marine acquisition prices than what they could manage internally with their own boats just goes to show how incredibly inept and inefficient this company is. Marine acquisition should be THE core... — read more
Anyone know what they do? How staff are involved? What is the likely impact on its sell off? — read more
New CEO believes CGG will survive as a data processing house and equipment manufacturer. Probably the most misguided idea possible, as she will shortly find out. People are leaving as they are being forced on to a new cheaper contract ahead of being... — read more
What's happening with the marine fleet???? How comes most of the vessels are not in production? Is this the end of the road?

What is the next CGG vessel to be taken out of production?
Ladies and gentleman, this pitiful state CGG is in right now is what you get when you let people who have no place running a company run the company. Majority of upper management got where they are through nepotism and a---kissing, and boy does it... — read more

Anyone from Acquisitions care to share their thoughts/experiences on the recent announcement?
Well, CGG is down again. Today it is at $1.49, down 8.5%. Will it get below $1.00 by the end of the year or the end of January? This company will end up with bankruptcy and being sold off in pieces to pay sc-aps to the debt holders.
Has anyone else noticed how work is now done in a much slower and unorganized manner than before? I mean, literally some projects take twice as long to finish then they use to take a couple of years ago. We all know the company is not in a good place... — read more

Is it true CGG is planing a major layoff round before the end of this month? Please tell me that's not true. Preparation for holidays is stressful as it is on its own. If I have to throw worrying about being laid off in the mix, I'm not sure my poor... — read more
The shares are falling because debt is rising quickly. Look at the quarterly reports since bankruptcy. Revenue is improving yet the profit generated is insufficient to cover depreciation, costs and high interest payments. Debt is in dressing about... — read more
Heard from many that were laid off two years ago and hired back as contractors with months , that this Oct/ Nov rotation is their last trip. You can be sure it does not bode well for those that are left.
Its not surprising . Really when you have a 82 page flowchart showing management from vessel manager to the top. You can imagine the money they were throwing away with make believe job titles. I'm sure not much has changed at the top in the last two... — read more
It's the new strategy to cut costs. Get rid of the more expensive older guys and replace them by cheap graduates. Apparently in the UK they have got rid of a number of older employees in the past couple of months - one who had been with the company... — read more
