Demise of a Great Technical Company

Current Employee - Senior Electrical Engineer  in  Indianapolis, IN
Current Employee - Senior Electrical Engineer in Indianapolis, IN

I have been working at Technicolor

Pros

Excellent technical staff and opportunities for creativeness
Fair benefits and insurance
Good working relationship among "individual contributors"

Cons

Senior management has no vision - focused on the immediate (poor) financial situation
Extremely bloated management structure
Most mid-to-upper management appears to be incompetent
Regular layoffs have become commonplace
Extreme workload expectations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would seem beneficial to lay off much of the senior/middle management and focus on the technical strengths of the company.

    I felt like a 2nd class citizen.

    Pros

    If you have to live in Indianapolis, and are technical, this is probably your best choice.

    Cons

    - Engineers are 2nd class citizens. The many bloated layers of management and support staff seem to survive the many layoffs, but the engineers are the first to go.
    - Poor communication from management about what is going on.
    - As a French-run company, American employees are easily discarded.
    - Yet another example of a company that has laid off so many workers that there are too few left to get anything done properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engineers are the bread and butter of the company. You should be more focused on keeping them happy than on keeping your bosses happy.
