      Pros

      Great friendly people Good benefits Fair observation and reviews by managers A degree of freedom in your work, no projects are the same and you develop your own signal processing flows

      Cons

      High expectations - as a non-geophysicist it's hard to get up to speed during probation period, new hires with an education in geophysics struggled with the pace Over-worked - Maybe influenced by lockdown, all team members were working longer than contracted hours. Multiple members online and making submissions past 11pm, particuarly close to client meetings when requests aren't met. I found myself working from 8:30 to 21:00 to stay on track when a mistake was made in the team

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay, nice bonuses, creature comforts are provided, there's plenty of societies, easy going people, nice offices. It gives a great opportunity to learn some new skills and get acquainted with office work (i.e. ticket systems & company email).

      Cons

      I would say the company benefits like health care and things are not quite as good as they are made out to be. Even with the company paying for part of your health care, it still costs and arm and a leg.

      Pros

      Hmm. Trying hard here. It used to be the people, but company culture has changed all that.

      Cons

      Appalling lack of management vision and a lot of 'Do what I say, not what I do'. If you like being treated as a commodity by the 'Old Boys' network', you might fit in.
