    I have been working at AVG Technologies full-time for less than a year

    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.

    Pros

    The pace is fast, rewards are good, the job is interesting and there are many opportunities for development and career growth. Great working environment and great people to work with.

    Cons

    As a public traded company we are constantly under pressure by the street to hit the numbers and this takes away the entrepreneurial flexibility and agility to seize certain opportunities

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn and grow, interesting work content, very good salary and benefits. People in the company are really great, they are the biggest asset of the company.

    Cons

    strategy is not clear and therefore each department sets its own goals. As a result there is competitiveness between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work as a team
