    Pros

    Great people, great benefits and great corporate culture in our business unit.

    Cons

    Leadership rewarded employees based on industry contact versus hard work. If the director told me to focus on schmoozing instead of taking on bigger and bigger workloads, I would have. Shame on me for thinking the gig was more than just a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Hope you can cash in on those contacts when the time comes!

    Pros

    Good people to work with, the film and TV industry is fun and rewarding, and the clients are interesting and challenging. Interesting technical landscape.

    Cons

    Absentee management struggles to find direction and market the company's services, leverage strengths, and makes it clear that if they can outsource something, they can and will. Treats talent as an expenditure and not much more.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and commit to core business, align resources with said business, treat employees with the respect they deserve.

    Focus is the key as Technicolor blends exit and new start strategies whip-lashing the employee base.

    Pros

    Well established and known company name. Well performed work by employees. Employees in general are good people.

    Cons

    Technicolor delayed layoffs so they could update their severance policy, reducing severance for some people by up to 85% to avoid paying them out. This was extremely unethical and not in line with their values.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as humans, not just numbers.
