Pros

Excellent benefits and better than average pay.

Cons

I've never seen such a Macchiavellian HR Department as at NDS. Your concerns and needs are not represented by this department, though they pretend to be on your side. Senior management in the card plant is not interested in advancement of its employees or fairness. There is much favoritism at play and gross salary inequities. A few people do most of the work.

Advice to Management

Fire your HR director. Find someone else who truly cares about people first instead of protecting their own power base.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I suppose it's a nice place if you're an under-achiever and just looking for a 9 to 5 job where you won't be expected to do anything extraordinary.

    Cons

    The management is terrible. No appreciation for good work. No career opportunities unless you're into office politics. Thinking outside of the box is discouraged. Bad vibes and unpleasant work atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Retire and go home. The current senior management is a lost cause. Also, replace your entire HR department.

    Pros

    Good living in the orange county. Nice suburban area, near the ocean, in the heart of one of the richest CA counties. If the work place was better - would be perfect.

    Cons

    Too much politics, there is no appreciation from the management, low pay. Engineers expected to work long hours, a lot of working with the off shore development teams (India, Israel, UK, Hong Kong, China, Korea...). Most of the work is maintaining existing systems, almost no new development (which is done in Israel).
    Company treats employees as if they have to be grateful for given the chance of working there.

    Not a catch.
