I worked at Irdeto full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

nice people and culture
good technical expertise with most on board, and a real drive to serve customers
Benefits and packages are attractive.
There is an open and collaborative culture in place, that allows good exchanges and contact between all levels within the organisation.
Also, a very international and diverse environment

Cons

too many changes in strategy and structure.
Also, more delegation and empowerment might help things run smoother.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    There are lots of smart people in the company and the the technology is great. Nice work/life balance.

    Cons

    Terrible senior management. Too many acquisitions that have failed. Because of that, we went through 2 rounds of layoffs in 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the CEO. Need new blood at senior management.

    I have been working at Irdeto full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They have some exceptionally competent people here and they pay fairly well.
    Some groups have worked with some very cutting-edge and advanced security technology.
    They have an impressive list of top-tier customers and well-established relationships with them.

    Cons

    Management is the company's weakness. They aren't incompetent, but (collectively) they are a mediocre bunch. As a result, this has become a very mediocre company to work for, which is a terrible shame. Management is a bit more authoritarian than necessary. They seem to have an inability to acknowledge mistakes. Employee engagement is very low; internal communication is at an all-time low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should not lose focus on the the importance of accountability and communication. They need to be more accountable for mistakes and improve the level of engagement with their employees.
