    I worked at Technicolor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, casual environment.

    Cons

    Very little appreciation from upper management, no company perks, little bonuses. We had to do potlucks for company events.

    Advice to Management

    Show some gratitude to your employees

    Pros

    Local management and team are great. Benefits are good, pay is good to great if you are a top performer and are willing to fight / play games to get a top salary. The people working at a low to mid level are mostly hard working, genuine people that I trust and are great to work with.

    Cons

    Senior management / CEO often makes veiled decisions and seems to know nothing about how the business works at a lower level. It often feels like we are busting our *** towards a goal, and then 5 seconds before we reach it, senior mgmt will completely change direction, resulting in losses, layoffs, etc..

    Advice to Management

    Local management is great. Senior management (France) could do better by trusting in the local leaders more.

    I worked at Technicolor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits and great corporate culture in our business unit.

    Cons

    Leadership rewarded employees based on industry contact versus hard work. If the director told me to focus on schmoozing instead of taking on bigger and bigger workloads, I would have. Shame on me for thinking the gig was more than just a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Hope you can cash in on those contacts when the time comes!

    I worked at Technicolor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, the film and TV industry is fun and rewarding, and the clients are interesting and challenging. Interesting technical landscape.

    Cons

    Absentee management struggles to find direction and market the company's services, leverage strengths, and makes it clear that if they can outsource something, they can and will. Treats talent as an expenditure and not much more.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and commit to core business, align resources with said business, treat employees with the respect they deserve.
