    I worked at Oberthur Technologies

    Pros

    1.) working schedule is flexible
    2.) fun working atmosphere since most people are friendly and nice
    3.) salary wise, depends on your experience and performance

    Cons

    too much office politics in the top management hence leading to high turnover rate of managers, because of this be prepared for the usual changing of direction to the projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1.) make a thorough analysis of the people that really contributes to the company
    2.) make a concrete planning from the start to avoid difficulties during the course of the project

    I worked at Oberthur Technologies

    Pros

    I enter there a t the beginning of my career and had a full autonomy in my job and this forced me to to things right. I had consideration from my boss but also liberty which was very good. then I had good opportunites to move abroad while staying in the company

    Cons

    but since it has been bought by an American company it seems to be non human oriented and performance oriented without giving you the opportunity to meet your goals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At my time, the management was extraordinary
