Satisfied with the job but not very much with my manager

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Oberthur Card Systems full-time

ProsI've worked a very long time for Oberthur and I have made very good friends. The working environment is OK and the offices are not bad and in a very central location

ConsSalaries are kept secret so I don't know how good they are in general, but mine has not increased very much over the years. Management is very adamant and does not allow employees to participate in the decision making process. You do as you are told and that is the end of it.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet employees share ideas with you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
