    Pros

    Absolutely none. Please avoid at all costs...

    Cons

    The senior accountants and accounting manager are the worst kind of people out there. Back stabbing individuals that only care about themselves..will gladly throw you under the bus without hesitation. Work here if you want a 1% pay raise.

    Pros

    Run away as fast as you can if you are approached by them.

    Cons

    I have worked at Technicolor for 2 years. I was part of the Cisco BU deal in 2015.

    I had always thought that silos in a company happened organically, over time. I never thought a company would actively choose to silo their business. Technicolor has proved me wrong on this. They have adopted a silo model for development. Creating an atmosphere of, reinvent the wheel, if it is not within my silo I do not care about it, not my job - go away, etc.
    A very toxic and depressing way of doing business.

    All they seems to care about is the bottom line, now that the license business for MPEG 2 is gone they are looking for the next cash cow to keep them afloat.

    Within 1 year they will have nothing but a pile of code and a customer list to show for the $600 million they paid Cisco. All of the human capital will have walked out the door.

    There was no way to give them a negative Rating below or i would have.
    Career: -2
    Senior Mgmnt: -5
    Culture and Values: -10
    Overall Rating: -8

    Advice to Management

    I would say "wake up" but it would do no good. The only thing that could happen is if the BoD or the shareholders replaced all of the senior management with people who actually knew what they were doing!
