    I have been working at Technicolor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We have some of the smartest people working here and a lot of very dedicated people.

    Cons

    older work force, few younger people being hired. Constantly reducing the work force, and upper middle management is just shuffled around

    Advice to Management

    Communicate your intentions of where things are going, what the next steps are on how you are going to get there. no communication is almost always viewed in a negative way

    I worked at Technicolor as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were really nice. Layer back atmosphere. Employees were gappy with and said how nice it was to finally have leadership.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from upper management. They tell you how good you're doing great job then poof. Next day you're not employed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you're employees. They are unhappy with management and not having leadership.

    Good work environment
    The employees are nice

    HR needs to be available...

    I have been working at Technicolor full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people in general were
    Pretty nice. They have so many temporary employees in every department, it just seems disorganized all the time.

    Cons

    Way too many chiefs and not enough Indians. While most
    Everyone tried to be kind, there were many who were not. Too little structure, too many temps. Not a conducive working environment for regular hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more regular employees and pay their benefits. You are employing way too many temporary employees, so there is no experienced supervision.

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

    Pros

    You always benefit from a large company in that large capital expenditures can happen and your paycheck will always clear.

    Cons

    Upper business unit management is comprised of people who have never had their hands dirty actually working on the business units products. They don't understand any of the detail or repercussions of some decisions and seem to manage by fear. They can only stare at the bottom line number on a spreadsheet someone else created. Of course that bottom line number is very important but the devil will always be in the detail and the need to truly understand that detail is critical.

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

    Pros

    In some positions you are able to decide what projects you work on and you have a lot of autonomy for your day to day work.

    Pay and benefits were competitive.

    Cons

    The company has no future and few plans other than maintaining low margin activities for commodity type products. Layoffs are frequent for U.S. employees when France decides to cut costs. Quality of work, seniority and profitability of the team have no bearing on the decision to reduce head count. Always waiting for the next shoe to fall. If you are not in Issy, you will never rise to a leadership position.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is beyond advice and are now grasping at straws.

    Pros

    Still defining, maybe more to share in another review, but noting to date. Oh there is one Pro, benefits are spectacular

    Cons

    Senior Leadership disheartening, disorganized and the lack of innovative thinking is just another knife to the moral fiber. Not much more to be said

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, cost cutting time is done.... time to grow. Oh yeah, NAM President, Technicolor is NOT a services company.

    Go back to France and drive your country into the ground. Leave ours alone.

    Pros

    The building is nice.

    Cons

    If you are not friends with the HR group you are screwed. If you have any problems.

    Advice to Management

    If someone askes for more responsibility maybe give it to them. So they don't get board and leave.
