Former Employee - Mech Engineer in Indianapolis, IN
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Experienced, team oriented mid management
Great cross-training opportunities
Great innovative projects

Cons

Self-destructive higher management focused on new acquisitions and quick turn-around profit
Despecable HR leaded by "token" former local athlet having lost the concept of Team
Innovative projects rarely converted to product because of CYA approach of group management: Patent and licencing is such an radier way to bring money

Advice to Management

Hope the Thomson stock crash from 20 to 0 € will bring a new technology aproach to Technicolor

    Pros

    Grass Valley products are interesting. Work is challenging. Technology is exciting. Compensation is acceptable. Local management is excellent and I mean top notch. Engineering talent is most likely the best in the industry (most of them have been around since it started). The company (Grass Valley) is about to be divested of Thomson. This can only be a good thing.

    Cons

    Thomson has greatly suppressed the company's ability to innovate and be competitive. This has allowed Grass Valley's competitors to gain significant ground on all product fronts. There is major overhead in the cost structure due mainly to Thomson's attempt to buy multiple company's and force them to play nice together. Thomson care's nothing for it's employees. Engineering tools and equipment are underfunded.

    Advice to Management

    Make the tough decisions. Stop trying to be sensitive to people's feelings. Make your decisions based purely on the data when deciding what product lines to maintain and where (location) to keep certain business operations. Some positions need to be removed and processes need to be simplified. Why in the **** do you still have two control systems?

    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.
