Pros

Thomson is Salt Lake has dedicated, knowledgeable people. They are some of the best people that I have ever worked with. There is a good sense of camaraderie.

Cons

Thomson as a parent company has not paid much attention to us; they don't seem interested in investing in our future.

Advice to Management

Invest in the future, not just this quarters returns. This isn't a high-growth business but can be profitable with a little attention.

    Pros

    Technicolor is among the best known companies in the entertainment industry, with over 90 years of history. Its a generally stable place to work, and the benefit package exceeds those found at many companies today. With facilities on nearly every continent on the globe, there's an incredible amount of cultural diversity within the company.

    Cons

    Communication is poor. Senior management tends to keep changes quiet even after they've happened. Recent layoffs have not been discussed by managers unless directly asked by employees. Many things about the company are learned in the trade publications before they're announced by management, IF they're announced by management.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to be more forthcoming with changes in the company. Let the employees know what's really going on. They may be surprised by the loyalty of their employees.

    Pros

    Princeton is a nice location to live. The house is more affordable than other cities with more similar jobs. The school districts in neighboring townships, including Plainsboro, South Brunswick, West Windsor and Montgomery are all high ranked. With NYC just one hour away, one can enjoy the city life without the hassle of living in a big city. Beaches are also just one hour away and are excellent for summer weekends.

    As a part of an international company, it has connection with other sites in China, France and other European countries. Employees have chances to get to know the working styles of other countries.

    Cons

    The company has not been successful in branding itself in the United States. When introducing the company to others, they may think about Thomson Financial, Thompson Real Estate, Thomson xxx, etc. Before RCA was sold, one good way was to indicate that RCA was owned by Thomson. Now I have to try Grass Valley, Technicolor, PRN, one by one to see if any of these brands sounds familiar.

    There are many products available from Thomson, but very few are leading products in their fields. Also with so many directions, it is hard to tell where the company is heading to.

    Advice to Management

    Every time a site was opened and then closed, it came at a cost of losing employees who weren't willing to relocate. It also sent the signals to other employees that the decisions, even from very high management level, might be not serious at all.
