    Pros

    Local management and team are great. Benefits are good, pay is good to great if you are a top performer and are willing to fight / play games to get a top salary. The people working at a low to mid level are mostly hard working, genuine people that I trust and are great to work with.

    Cons

    Senior management / CEO often makes veiled decisions and seems to know nothing about how the business works at a lower level. It often feels like we are busting our *** towards a goal, and then 5 seconds before we reach it, senior mgmt will completely change direction, resulting in losses, layoffs, etc..

    Advice to Management

    Local management is great. Senior management (France) could do better by trusting in the local leaders more.

    I worked at Technicolor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to gain experience needed totransition to another job. Ok benifits and rewarding at times. Unlimited overtime

    Cons

    12 hour 7 day work week. Not ideal for family oriented people. Especially mothers with small children. Little chance of advancement. Gossipy immature management team.

    Advice to Management

    Consider your employee's complaints to minimize such a high turnover rate especially during peak season. Bed considerate that your employees have families.

    Pros

    You're working in a fast paced environment, with numerous opportunities to learn new skills. And the supervisors are motivating, which in turn makes it a pleasant place to work.

    Cons

    Working with this company during certain months can be overwhelming if you have a family. During peak seasons it's sometimes required to work 7 days a week, and some employees may have to work 12 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!!!
