Pros

Great work life balance and great respect amongst everyone. Very friendly place to work! Strives to follow good process and produce high quality.

Can have a lot of work on legacy platforms -- not very cutting edge work. Sometimes it can be very slow paced environment.

Advice to Management

Provide more opportunities to take part in innovation. Create a program to include proactive/innovative type work as fixed percentage of time.

    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.
