    Pros

    Mostly the people, great community of friendly and passionate people. A lot of small startups have been acquired so the talent here is through the roof and it's never boring. No matter what your role, there's always room to explore and push yourself with room for internal growth both personally and professionally. Great salary!

    Cons

    Working with different timezones on a global scale can be challenging... but then again there's lots of travel involved so this doesn't really qualify as a con.

    Pros

    Past-paced, dynamic, interesting work, great leadership. Working on protecting consumers and kids online.

    Cons

    Recently gone public, which limits some of the edginess of the company. Government decisions will have impact and the company continue to innovate quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the company faster!!! Great innovation which needs to be showcased more.

    I have been working at AVG Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    People are very professional, driven, but still friendly. The idea about the responsibilities I was given before I joined was accurate, and although it is a bigger challenge than I expected, I really like it here. All the people that I work with (and it's a lot!), are really helpful, even where I would not expect it really.
    The remuneration is good, benefits are wide, the working environment and culture is really nice.

    Cons

    Given the size of the company I think the organization structure could be simpler. Even after months I am discovering new people that I should take into account.

    Pros

    AVG Technologies is doing a great job in order to keep it's steep growth. The market is dynamic, so the company is evolving dynamically. The growth is driven by a team of friendly and smart people who are not afraid of work. Pay is slightly above average.

    Pros

    The people at a company make all the difference. AVG treats it's employees with respect and dignity. It's fun to work with people that have a sense of humor and that are really good people. Being paid properly and having a budget also helps.

    Cons

    As with all public companies, nothing happens as fast as we would like. I'm still working on this. It better than the government. Being in support is sometimes tough as the hours can be extremely long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the dedication that employees are providing. Provide more staff so we can share the load. I really enjoy working directly for someone with so much experience and intelligence.
