Make sure to hire for the Firmware Department, not Software

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Richardson, TX

I have been working at AMX full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood company environment overall. The work in the Firmware Department is both challenging and rewarding. Technical accomplishments are recognized and the environment is not political. However this is not true for the Software Department.

ConsMake sure to get your money upfront because if you ever see a raise it will be very small.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement the company culture from the Firmware side to the Software side or combine the two departments.

Good, but waiting for greatness to return!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at AMX full-time

ProsAMX has a lot of great employees and remnants of a great culture. If you are a true Sales Professional (professional meaning hard worker), this is the place for you! Great people, hard-working (truly great) engineers and exciting technology.

ConsLack of focus or defined goals from the top. Very top-heavy with non-performing V.P. level (not all of them, there are a few greats). Executive Team appears to tolerate mediocrity rather than challenge the poor decision making of the CEO, at risk of their job no doubt. Marketing cannot run a technical company; especially when product release dates/features have overwhelmingly not been timely met for years.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit trimming low-level fat in your house cleaning sessions; address the issue from the top-down... Yes, Duchossois Group, you need to be involved next round. Bottom line, top line - AMX could be so much more if run and managed better, I believe Bob Caroll proved this already. Expect more of your highly paid management levels and hold them accountable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Looks aren't everything

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at AMX full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat products that are fun to work on. At one time they had the only/best products for automated control of electronics (not sure if that remains true).

ConsPoor planning, adversarial relationships among some employees.

Overall a pretty good place to work

Marketing (Former Employee)
Richardson, TX

I worked at AMX

ProsOverall, AMX is a decent place to work. It provides a laid back environment (dress code), employess are friendly and helpful. There is a cafeteria on-site which is convenience and they provide an average benefits package.

ConsThe expectations are very long hours and if you're not willing and/or able to work that long you will eventually be let go. The company is very unorganized in their direction.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo many chiefs not enough indians. Executive team needs to connect with the little people more. Overall a nice place to work, but you shouldn't force your employees to fill out the "best places to work" survey so you contiunally win.

Fun product, good pay, people and culture...meh

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at AMX

ProsVery interesting product line. You will never get bored. Work load is not high

ConsCliques. Looks like you have to know somebody to get in or keep your job. Many managers got their own set of "friends" that work with them, and they take their "friends" with them when they change depts, and keep them around during layoffs and get rid of others.
Tough to break in to these cliques.

Advice to Senior ManagementExec management should look in to this clique culture, unless ofcourse they are the same way.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
