    The pay is fair and the benefits or okay.

    Lots of barriers among departments. There isn't a lot of team work. The departments and sister locations work in silos.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus on building camaraderie among departments and management and eliminate the focus on office politics.

    No raise, frequent layoff (at least in the U.S. division), manager that doesn't have a life themselves and don't want you to have a life

    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.

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

    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

    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!

    I have been working at Technicolor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large company, depending on what department you work in there can be potential for growth. Also, depending on department you can have great managers. Luckily I fall into that category.

    Cons

    Lots of company policies to adhere to, which can be difficult with time sensitive needs. Though once you know the correct procedure to take things tend to go smoothly.

    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.
