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

    Pros

    Engineers who are left from Cisco takeover are talented. First level managers are good. Higher level management is not.

    Cons

    Management is erecting taller and taller silos between groups. No long term vision for how to avoid commoditization of remaining products. No respect for work/life balance at the higher levels of management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the engineers.

    I worked at Technicolor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I first started, the company as a whole felt like it really cared about its employees.

    Cons

    When the layoffs started, they made the atmosphere unwelcoming. Numerous changes from a lax and enjoyable work environment to a strict and extremely low morale environment. 5 responsibilities per employee, became 10-15 responsibilities per employee with no compensation. The constant lay off and rehiring of the same employees you just laid off was ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers fairly and justly. It truly was a shame what this company once was.

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

    Pros

    Good salary. Excellent coworkers. Fun work environment. Nice facility. Provided tools to get our jobs done. Challenging work. Recognized for work well done.

    Cons

    Company closed the facility in and of 2017. I work with difficult customers as best we could. We did little to define the products most was done by customer.? So we had little control of our destiny.

    Advice to Management

    As they closed the facility in Indianapolis there is little advice to give them. To make the Georgia facility run better I would suggest they have some of their own product so they control their own destiny
