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

    Pros

    Brand Name well know throughout the world, compensation and benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, vision and execution. Employee moral is low and top management not in tune with lower level employees. This breeds and environment of takers and not doers.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously need to overhaul Executive Staff as they are not listening to their own people. Moral starts at the top of any organization!

    I worked at Technicolor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not exactly sure I can think of any pros with this company....

    Cons

    Technicolor brought Cisco CDBU back on 11/20/2015. Before the transaction close, the CEO of connected home told everyone that they will keep all teams and lease new buildings for each site. 2 months after the closed, they shutdown the San Jose site. They gave employees the option to relocate to georgia or take a LO package. The LO package was payout bi-weekly like a regular paycheck instead of a lump sum payment, but once you find a job, they will stop payment. Everyone knows this company is cheap, but they promised one thing then lying about it... Then screw the employees they are laying off by paying them only until they find a job??? What kind of company does that to their employees??? Also, the relocation to georgia does not guarantee job security, so they want employees to sacrifice everything for them. another BS...

    Advice to Management

    You guys are pathetic... What goes around comes around... I'm so happy I'm not working for this POS company anymore!

    Pros

    One of the best employers for post production with opportunities to stay current with job skills and to learn new technology. Pretty friendly environment with some experienced people.

    Cons

    The post industry is shrinking and on the decline. More content providers are doing their post in their own offices as software and hardware is becoming cheaper and easier. The days of the large post environment are declining. .

    Advice to Management

    Hire wisely and be fair about wages and job expectations. Retain as many experienced people as possible. Throwing a lot of inexperienced IT people at a problem is not always the best answer.
