    I have been working at AMX full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Idea capable with cutting edge technology,

    Cons

    Need for better advertising and marketing, need to be more agile internally to respond to issues, need to expand support to dealers and endusers. No real idea about the customer and how they select the products . Does not hire innovation in the areas they are weak. Must learn the competion down to the product lines so clear differentiation can be made and verified by the channel and the users. Dealers are in charge of the customers perception of the products and services AMX should be managing. Everyone in the company should be in sales and support of the customers. Do not pay sales and support personnel in the same fashion unless you are willing to degrade the pay for those in operations when they do not deliver the products and services to sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is working like it has for the past 30 years , need to inovate in sales an support for dealers and endusers especially when you are late to delivery you full capabilities. The company is asking its dealers and endusers to trust in the new products but getting them was delayed and spotty and now the company need to commission the new lines for success if they do not want to destroy the momentum they have converting folks over to the new products. More touches with the decision makers on usage will only help overcome the lead your competitors have currently.

    I worked at AMX full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cool products, nice people, good benefits and competitive salary. Office in Richardson is quite modern and appears to be a good environment.

    Cons

    If you're working for a regional office expect conflicting direction and ever-changing priorities coming out of HQ. A lot of spark, but no fire (strong ambition, no direction, limited execution - believes it can regain market-share w/o innovation but by pure cult of personality. Senior Management changes often as executives quickly fall out of favor - this accelerates directional changes and often shuffles priorities!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be CONSISTENT and define whom and what you want to be already! Innovate and drop some of the legacy products and software you've been carrying along for over TWO DECADES NOW! Decide what markets you honestly want to compete in, and cut the cord/rip off the band-aid in markets to which you are obviously paying lip service (home automation). Finally, decide what's more important: honestly in evaluating your core competencies or brown-nosing your way on to job sites / into all internal discussions!

    Pros

    Really great people to work with. Benefits are good. Environment is upbeat.

    Cons

    Engineering is prohibited from speaking to sales. What the? Employees are smarter than management. They should switch places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push decisions down to the people closest to the customers. Do your homework. Stop guessing.
