    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Oberthur Technologies full-time

    Pros

    I'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

    Cons

    Salaries 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 Management

    Let employees share ideas with you.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Oberthur Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast changing company reinventing itself for the better. Passionate and dedicated professionals with strong expertise on their field. Strong focus on our customers and dedication to problem solving and differentiating not only technically but also in our relationship with our customers.

    Cons

    Still strong heritage from the past that constitute challenges in the daily operations (not only on the business side but also in terms of tools and policies). Thankfully most of these are changing and adapting to a changing market. Some divisions are startup-like while some others may sometimes feel anchored in the past and further down in the change management process.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work that is being undertaken!

    Pros

    There are advancement opportunities for those who work hard and show that they want to be there.

    Cons

    The production employees are overworked and underpaid, compared to other companies in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth. The upper levels of management make a significant amount and those hourly employees make peanuts.

    Pros

    Global presence offers exciting opportunities for people who are so enclined. Good team culture and limited silos. Lots of autonomy.

    Cons

    Lack of carreer development opportunities. Compensations offered not always in par with the market and bonuses not consistently aligned with performance.

    Advice to Management
