    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.

    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 a year)

    Pros

    Technicolor is great "foot in the door" job. Much like talent agencies, Technicolor allows someone new to the entertainment industry to acclimate and begin networking.

    Cons

    Much like any entertainment related job, personalities vary and someone will not be as nice or patient as other.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time.

    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.

    I worked at Technicolor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are wonderful to work with. Patient, extremely knowledgable, and generally very friendly. As far as learning the ropes as an intern, it is hard to think of a place that provides more opportunities to get your feet wet in real world applications than Technicolor. You do get opportunities to move up if you work hard and stay patient.

    Cons

    The morale in the company (at least at the Indy site) is extremely low, and understandably so. Much of the technology is out of date. There always seems to be a major crisis either on the doorstep or right around the corner. A layoff in July sent 10% of the Indy location's engineers out the door. The disconnect between upper management in France and stateside is painfully obvious, with large projects changing directions, being dropped, then picked back up at a moments notice, and never enough time to meet the deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the upper level folks in the US more, and you may regain the trust of the your employees here. Try to stabilize your true focus and goals for the company and actually follow through with it instead of throwing out cheap slogans and pep-talks.
