Thread regarding CGG Veritas layoffs

Ideal ratio of managers to workers?

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 would start breathing again if they were to get rid of unnecessary managers?

I think you are both right!

Layer after layer of non-billing managers, many of which are relatively inexperienced and no sign of people skills amongst any of them. It would be a joke if it wasn't actual real. Theres a real disconnect between the workers and management - no wonder people are walking out of the door weekly.

No sign of profitability and a huge debt pile.

Debt holders (and shareholders) should be demanding a cull - of the number of offices, the unprofitable teams (there are a lot) and the many, many managers!

Do you actually work here?! CGG is now a company of kids - all the adults over 40 have been fired and replaced with cool young eco-warriors who don't do any work but are spectacularly good at asking for perks. Nobody does any managing anymore...
