    I worked at De La Rue full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice staff, good security, friendly people and workers alot of overtime and work, good health and safety precautions.

    Cons

    My contract was done by a sdcond company called inspectra wich paid half of others wage and shift allowance was reduced to 19 euro a month from a c shift of 90 euro a week this is slavery

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You built a company build a good structure and a decent wage to your workers and not working with a company making false promises to workers and treating them like a disposable Thing when needed work when not leave or go work with a lesser wage in other factories till you need them again

    Pros

    Everyone is so polite and professional, and they are willing to do whatever they need to to assist in making your job easier. The company values diversity.

    Cons

    Multi-national company, time differences are hard to get used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit the facility in Dallas more often, and stay longer. That way you can see what happens here.

    Former Employee - Field Service in Irving, TX

    I worked at De La Rue

    Pros

    money, friendly people at Union Bank that continued to give me references after the company mistreated me

    Cons

    This company, after my employment ended at this company, was found to have lied to California EDD to get out of paying UI payments after they lost money fo the year. False accusations to a judge and Cal EDD caused the judge to reverse a decision and reinstate my UI payments. Management and coworkers loaded evaluations with false statements. Training classes conducted unprofesionally in Irving TX. Look at the "interview" review and it sums up the lack of professionalism at this company. The HR rep who misrepresented the law does not work there anymore. No suprise there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has no leadership skills. They have no knowledge of California labor law as well.

    I worked at De La Rue full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    big support from the manager when facing a difficult private situation, friendly atmosphere, additional days off for university exams, Fridays afternoons available to study

    Cons

    not always very well organised, chemistry placement students may struggle with the final university projects write ups as the work done at de la rue at times is very little scientific, a lot of repetitive work done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support the university project work more,

    Great to start my career off, but low salary, no real career progression and wasted potential leaves much to be desired.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    I worked at De La Rue

    Pros

    Good Environment for learning in initial stage of career, Good work life balance,

    Cons

    No growth as business in India shrinking day by day, less salary comparing to Industry. Internal politics at highest level in India business. You can be fired anytime if not in good books or will try to raise your voice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I will advice to senior management in UK to look after India business management also, it seems like a small group of 2-3 people running this company, no policies and procedures follows, you have to be only in goods books of those people to survive in the Company. Company can fire you any time with silly or no reasons.

  11. Old fashioned company / Great heritage and reputation. Two sides of the same coin

    I have been working at De La Rue full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great heritage and reputation after 200+ years in business, deep knowledge in some areas, fascinating products. Social responsibility is good (and genuine) in patches.

    Cons

    No real strategy, just more of the same and try a few new things. Old fashioned in many ways, for example the financial and personnel systems are mostly manual and don't support business decision making. Knowledge retention is poor, experience and information is allowed to leave with staff. No commitment to performance reviews and developing talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade business systems so that real time analysis can be done on key operating areas to drive business investment
