    I worked at Oberthur Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with, they are like family.
    Steady paycheck, always paid on time.
    A lot of areas to gain experience.

    Cons

    The people you work with, they are like family. Family is not always pleasant.
    Pays enough to keep you, but not enough to live life fully.
    Constant schedule changes, making employees take vacation time when "slow", but then ordering mandatory overtime a week later.
    Not much room for growth, salary caps are too low, no exceptions for cost of living. You can be working there for 10 years with no merit increase.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ruling by fear. Get organized and get paperwork to your employees on time. Be more professional. Stop making people take vacation time one week, then making them work overtime the next week.

    I have been working at Oberthur Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The place is an air conditioned facility that produces millions of credit cards for global companies each week.

    Work is typically steady, and the working culture is mostly positive

    Cons

    Working hard against unionization. Short sighted management. Will hire temps and then keep them as temp workers for a year plus only to fire them at the first sign of business slowing.

    Morale is low when work is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like there are short term solutions to long term problems.
