    Pros

    For the most part, Technicolor employs good people. There are always a few bad eggs, but my experience has been exceedingly positive. If you show competency and perform well in your position, they're generally happy to allow you to move up within the company. You'll have to go a little bit out of your way to get noticed and receive acknowledgement for your good work, but management isn't blind. Be positive and assertive with where you want to be. The company is struggling to make some changes and become something new, and the plan for this looks ambitious and bright.

    Cons

    As I mentioned above, doing your job well every day isn't quite enough. The extra effort is necessary to get noticed. The organization of this company is often confusing, causing employees to not really be aware of what division they work for, and changes in the company structure are not communicated as clearly as they could be.

    Advice to Management

    Better communicate to employees Technicolor's relationship with its parent company, Thomson. Clearly define the company divisions in the broad scope.


  2. "Know exactly how you are going to contribute ..."

    Pros

    Involvement with opportunities in the field of media/post-production. If you get involved with challenging project(s) with good team members and management, there are growth within Technicolor (usually the case, but hard to come by).

    Cons

    New opportunities to work on are hard to come by due to uncertainty, lack of clarity, and management reluctance to make up their mind. Due to multiple levels of management, and lack of clear motivation, direction/involvement, and budget, the company is bleeding in revenue and possibly new ventures as well. Old, stubborn, and un-passionate management is closed to new ideas or promote team motivation to see projects through.

    Advice to Management

    1. Break problems into smaller deliverables
    2. Talk less, act and move fast
    3. Delegate ownership more
    4. Involve teams, not few individuals
    5. Take better interest in employees
