    I worked at Oberthur Card Systems full-time

    Pros

    My co-workers were great and made the long hours go by quick.

    Cons

    Little to no cross-training, mandatory overtime, no career advancement, changing hours, and management that does not care about the well being of their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pretend to care about your employees.

    Pros

    Great informal atmosphere, dynamic people and interesting work.

    Cons

    Back office is run from paris and is super slow. HR is not on your side, nothing is urgent including payment of your incentive plans. Make sure you get everything you want in writing before joining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people and pay your people in a timely manner. Give more regional autonomy, regions don't need to run to Paris for every decision.

    Pros

    The way the schedule was, you got every other weekend off, which was a good thing. You could make plans around that,

    Cons

    The twelve hour shifts. If you can do it or used to doing it, you'll have no problem. It get's boring at times. If you get to work in another section, you learn something new!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more TRUST in your employees!!!!!
