    I have been working at Technicolor full-time

    Pros

    This is a company with lots of very talented employees and a very friendly environment. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    The very senior-most management levels have long since lost focus and the ability to drive effective change leadership. Quarter-by-quarter short term actions lead to short-term thinking at the expense of long-term prosperity. Buyer beware...

    I worked at Technicolor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the full time staff have been working for company for a long time and have extensive knowledge of production process.

    Cons

    Most of the Management have been working for the company for a long time and do not listen to the workers on the floor which I consider to be "Experts" in production. To be fair, the product produced at the Olyphant Plant is CD & DVD replication and packaging which may be beyond saving at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify into other products. Communicate with long time employees and come up with a plan together.

    Pros

    Big company, generally you are in luck if you are in CA.

    Cons

    You experience will depend on management. Overall the company is shrinking and cutting costs. Ethics has been dying over the last few years.

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

    Pros

    A small shop so wearing many hats and learning new areas is a must. I have been able to acquire much more knowledge and experience then a larger environment would allow

    Cons

    With outsourcing and limited in house resources there are more projects than time or resources Operations management turns over quickly causing it direction to change and current enhancements become unused. A change in direction is need at system analysis level.
    many high priority project then time and resources

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between operations and IT
    Stabilize management turn over in operations

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

    Pros

    Paid well with good benefits; Workers in Michigan were well trained (in general); Safety was a top priority; Although it took some time, employees worked well (in general) with other departments/areas to accomplish company goals; Employees (in general) took pride in work; Overall, despite closing facilities, Technicolor was great to me and my family.

    Cons

    Other sites do not share the above Pros; Due to declining product line (DVD, Blu Ray, Video Games) company experienced massive layoffs, including closing facilities; Decisions to close facilities were not based on performance, quality, customer satisfaction, operations that actually made a profit, etc, negatively affecting the best operations in North America and keeping open the poorer operations (Memphis, TN) and then buying additional facilities from competition; Company has gone to more & more temporary work force, laying off leads, material handlers, & supervisors while hiring more Senior Management over last few years; Major projects are often implemented at the worst times, such as beginning of peak season.

    Advice to Management

    Although, I understand facilities needed to be closed due to declining business, it is a shame that the chaotic zoo of Memphis was the survivor. However, I sincerely appreciate everything that Technicolor has done for me. It was a great ride!

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

    Pros

    It is located in a convenient, beautiful campus, with CafeTeria, Gym and walking trail around a lake, soccer field and beach volleyball court.

    Cons

    This French based organization is changing operation directions, way too often, from higher management who don't know how to operate a company in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of wasting, valuable time to market, for the new products, on sending the jobs to India, where over-promising and under-delivering is a norm, focus on local talent and stop them from leaving the company.
