I don't even care if that makes me sound like an as----e, but I pray for layoffs and I pray they include me. I'm done with this place.
What's your opinion?
CGG sales off Smart Data Solutions to Access USA and Oasis UK as of January 4th. SDS was the smallest piece of the CGG pie but the one that remained profitable year-to-year. The pearls in the crown are thrown to the pigs and the diamonds turn out to... — read more
We really must be really making a tonne of money!
What's the timeframe for closing Galileo? Will the staff their be offered alternative locations?
Is it true that CGG is using its processing servers to mine crypto currency in off-hours? If so, where does this income show up on the quarterly reports.
Only fools believe they have a future here. Everybody else has either left already or is trying to leave.
Magic money tree losing 93M dollars in Q3. How long can it last?
What is Sophie’s strategy to turn the company around, make it profitable and get the debt pile down to a manageable level? Anyone know?
So, GeoSoftware has officially gone now. Here's the bookies' odds for what's next... North Sea Data Library - Evens Sercel 2-1 Galileo - 7-2 All Data Library - 4-1
CGG is still making quarterly losses, the debt pile is enormous and the credit line is being further reduced by each loss. With the majors culling oil and gas spend and no sign of a major pickup, is it over for CGG?
This seems to me to be a company for managers. My opinion is that this situation is unsustainable because the company will soon have more managers than employees. More and more people are leaving, but managers are staying. It seems to me that CGG... — read more
Multi-physics has been sold and other businesses are apparently up for sale - any suggestions for what’s on the chopping block?
So, GeoSoftware is now sold. That leaves about 3,000 out of what was recently a company of 12,000 - and that still includes Sercel! It's a bit like the knight in Monty Python that thinks he can keep fighting when all his limbs have been chopped off!... — read more
What's the work schedule at cgg? Do they offer 9/80 schedule?
The stock price dropped from $2,000 to $1.
CGG is carrying legacy debt from the days when they delivered the full suite of seismic services and products. I recall many years when one business bailed out another (Sercel and land) to deliver OK results. They still carry the debt but now only... — read more
It was announced back in the beginning of August that multi-physics would be sold off to Xcalibur group, since then we’ve heard nothing. Is it still happening?
We are not making any money despite the data processing being done. We have a massive amount of debt which is not going down. We continue to spend money we do not have. HOW ARE WE STILL IN BUSINESS?
Sophie appointed to Technip board, makes you wonder if a Technip takeover is back on the cards. The company is a lot cheaper now compared what it was in 2014. ... — read more
Has anyone tried transitioning their career to renewables? I’m thinking about making a career change and I wonder how sensible that move would be. I still do not have a good insight into the opportunities and job offers in this sector. I am... — read more
CGG is my former workplace, I left recently before they could fire or lay me off. I couldn’t take it anymore because suddenly there was no reason for me to stay. The stock price speaks volumes about the state of the company. I just wonder, why do... — read more
I would have thought that pledging profitablilty by 2050 would be the first step. The optimism that they will still be around in 2050 is grounds for hope. Presumably by relocating to Shanghai. PS Polarcus defaulting: thoughts on that?
CGG's stock price from $2000 in 2008 to $0.51 now. It is a garbage stock
Daily Post says 15 or 60 to go, depending who you listen to. The cookie is still crumbling, sadly.
When it's quiet you know something bad is happening.
I heard that almost 1/3 employees were "cut off". Is that true?
WITH LAYOFFS CURRENTLY VERY LOW IS THE FUTURE OF CGG MUCH MORE POSITIVE? RECRUITMENT, BONUSES AND SALARIES ARE ON THE RISE. NEW CONTRACTS BEING WON. OIL PRICES LOOKING GOOD ALONG WITH GREAT CGG RESPONSE TO COVID-19. THE FUTURE LOOKS... — read more
Q2 $147M loss and cost reduction plan announced. Anyone know what this involves ?
Start packing. Happening in August.
You can be as asset light as you want, but it won’t solve your incompetence problem.
I received phone call from HR department today informing me that I was being made redundant. Bit of a shame really... I enjoyed my 25 years offshore with CGG and forerunners Veritas and Digicon. It will be interesting to see where the current... — read more
Net loss of $61M for the yr. Not the result promised ...
1 JUMPED, 4 PUSHED. THE 4 PUSHED OUT WERE ALL IN ONE TEAM. BEWARE OF VISITS BY HUMAN RESOURCES.
Anyone know what they do? How staff are involved? What is the likely impact on its sell off?
My fellow victims. The year was 2012 - London a heady, lovedrunk party carnival atmosphere celebrating biodiversity of the Olympian proportions including (but not limited to) the since k–ler Oscar Pistorious, on the blades, scything through the... — read more
