    I have been working at NDS Americas full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Global team. Cutting edge technology. At the cusp of accelerating the pay tv related technologies. Result focused and merit based reward systems in place.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. The teaming happens at a global scale rather than local. Which is good for some and bad for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Great work life balance and great respect amongst everyone. Very friendly place to work! Strives to follow good process and produce high quality.

    Cons

    Can have a lot of work on legacy platforms -- not very cutting edge work. Sometimes it can be very slow paced environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities to take part in innovation. Create a program to include proactive/innovative type work as fixed percentage of time.

    Terrible HR department, old-timers getting a free ride, favoritism

    I worked at NDS Americas

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and better than average pay.

    Cons

    I've never seen such a Macchiavellian HR Department as at NDS. Your concerns and needs are not represented by this department, though they pretend to be on your side. Senior management in the card plant is not interested in advancement of its employees or fairness. There is much favoritism at play and gross salary inequities. A few people do most of the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your HR director. Find someone else who truly cares about people first instead of protecting their own power base.
