    Start holding people accountable. Hire qualified people and equip them with the tools they need to run a firts class organization. Stop treating people like they farm animals, you will burn them out. Hire the required number of staff to be more efficient and effective. There is a reason no one stays there past 8 months.

    Pros

    Some really good people work there with great dedication.

    Cons

    Serious integrity issues, middle management deceptive about employee benefits, job descriptions, and responsibilities. Company deceives not only employees, upper management, customers, and sister company. Pure “sweat shop” mentality and policies. Location hires “temporary” employees that are promised to be made permanent with benefits, nothing but simple deception. Frightening that this is the company responsible for making your credit cards.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of management at Chantilly location.

    Pros

    My co-workers were great and made the long hours go by quick.

    Pretend to care about your employees.

    Pros

    Interesting unique high-tech projects, modern effective software stack used for solution development and delivery. Some very devoted and skilful people are still working here. And it is a pleasure to work with them.

    Cons

    Awful Poland devops support. Prepare for unexpected weekend overtimes due to sudden network outages and consequences of "planned" CI/bugtracker/artifactory maintenance. No effective way to communicate or negotiate with the management. People are not the greatest asset here. Not even an asset at all. Do not expect the project management to support your initiatives. Otherwise you might be very disappointed.

    I worked at Oberthur Technologies as a contractor

    Pros

    awesome projects, fantastic for your resume, regular training and most of all you'll meet alot of experineced professionals.

    Cons

    There's one region in asia where customer support, technical and HR team comes from. If you get in and you aren't that nationality, it's terrible. People are terribly racist. You miss out on opportunities because of your skin color. And how will you pay someone from a certin region of the world 'less' even when he is as qualified as the asians and europeans?? having the right advanced degrees, etc.
    You find yourself in the technical department and you aren't asian and you're accademically qualified, then you become a threat.
    Unnecessary salary hikes for the asian cabal, smh.

    Advice to Management

    Oberthur is a multinational. Cultural diversity should be respected, especially in the Dubai office. The fact that labor laws are disregarded by companies in Dubai doesn't mean oberthur should follow the band wagon. Never employ an individual and refuse him/her a work permit just because the individual is a student. And then Oberthur's HR goes under the guise of "oh, it's an internship. This job is an accademic requirement...smh"
