    Pros

    Fast changing company reinventing itself for the better. Passionate and dedicated professionals with strong expertise on their field.
    Strong focus on our customers and dedication to problem solving and differentiating not only technically but also in our relationship with our customers.

    Cons

    Still strong heritage from the past that constitute challenges in the daily operations (not only on the business side but also in terms of tools and policies). Thankfully most of these are changing and adapting to a changing market. Some divisions are startup-like while some others may sometimes feel anchored in the past and further down in the change management process.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work that is being undertaken!

    I worked at Oberthur Technologies full-time

    Pros

    I've worked a very long time for Oberthur and I have made very good friends. The working environment is OK and the offices are not bad and in a very central location

    Cons

    Salaries are kept secret so I don't know how good they are in general, but mine has not increased very much over the years. Management is very adamant and does not allow employees to participate in the decision making process. You do as you are told and that is the end of it.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees share ideas with you.

    Pros

    Above average benefits, work-life balance, work pressure is not high, nice perks

    Cons

    It is good if you are in a good team, some teams is mismanage and only look upward and do not understand his team. It is good for the company but not with the team. Career growth is very rare.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training, certificates, salary increase and pick a better manager for team.

    I have been working at Oberthur Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The environment is ever evolving in a neck break pace.
    No two days are the same.
    Almost instant gratification after changes.
    Very unique work experience.
    The turnover is quick, which means abundant career opportunities.

    Cons

    The environment is ever evolving in a neck break pace.
    The first "temporary" solution usually turns permanent.
    Change due dates are not measured in days but hours and minutes.
    Too unique work experience. The usefulness outside OT is limited so you can get trapped in the position.
    The turnover is too quick. Experience gets lost all the time.

    Advice to Management

    The area is so special, the "You are expendable" and "I can always find better" mentality is not working.
