The demands of the industry are such that the periodic workloads can be unpredictable and therefore can be challenging if you are not used to working in a such an environment.

I would say that the staff is alright and the management is not that bad, but there is an agencey in site that treats their staff with no responsibility. I had problems with the taxes when I start, after just 2 weeks problems with the payments and so on.. Seems that they don't really care and the management is not taking any action. But yeah, I belive its not the worst agency in the UK but I'm sure that is far from a good one.

Poor management and very poor pay for central London.
They don’t like to promote from within, they are very set on employing people with skills already in place.

Some people were lovely to work with, but the environment just wasn’t pleasant in the slightest

Good place to work. Despite the changes in the DVD market Technicolor still stands strong and gives you the opportunity to learn a bit more about the movie industry.
Pros
Free DVD boxes each christmas
Cons
Quite busy in Q4

The job itself is so boring the staff are rude and put allot of pressure on you when you are working for such little money. I would only recommend this as a part time job as doing this repetitively causing lots of back problems and injury’s and isn’t worth the risk for what you are paid.Their are lots more opportunities out their with much higher potential for advancement into bigger areas this has no potential at all.
Pros
You are employed on contract so can come in when you want
Cons
Rubbish hours, pressure from management and repetitive strain caused to body

I got an opportunity to work as an administration assistant which gave me experience working in an office. The office culture was quite fun. Everybody worked hard but played hard also.

Very nice working colleagues though managerial staff could be very standoffish. A nice working environment clean and not too dirty. A time consuming security system which delays start time and finish time.

Heavy lifting

Working under the Director of Digital Media - I was provided with a lot of opportunities to explore the various roles in the company. Spending time at post-production facilities in both Lexington Street (Soho) and in Perivale.

It was a great experience and valued gaining insight into file management and distribution.
Pros
Free Phone
Cons
I could have stayed there longer!

The worst thing I found about working for Technicolor was the poor IT facilities. The HR function is poorly organised and you will often find yourself working beyond 6.00pm without additional pay.
There is an expectation of you to work beyond 6 everyday and constant disruption to get things done because of pointless meetings.


This company will expect you to be loyal but will not give any in return.


There is an air of misery at Technicolor, particularly in the Post Production and HR departments.


Unfortunately the ambition of this company stops at the top level of management and does not trickle down any further.


The most enjoyable part of the job was the colleagues who for the most part shared my sentiments.


UK employment policies and multiculturalism seemed to go out of the window when the management from France got involved.


I would advise HR and Finance staff not to take opportunities here - especially not permanent. For production and creative professionals I would say only work here for on a freelance basis.
Cons
Staff are poorly paid, too much corporate nonsense, the management from France do not appreciate the UK work culture.

A typical day at work always allowed me time to start new a analysis of data I felt the Management would appreciate.
The Management seemed to change quite often.

The workplace culture seemed to be that everyone simply got on with their job even though it was not always clear why it was being done.

I did not find any of it to be overly hard to do.

It was always enjoyable when I was given a new task and left to figure out how it was going to be done.
Pros
It gave me some new challenges to solve
Cons
Middle Management did not always understand why some things were done
