    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

    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.

    Cons

    The dynamics is not for everyone. If you want a quiet work, AVG is not for you.

    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.

    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

    I have been working at AVG Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Super-smart team, and a leadership that is very driven and hungry for success, while maintaining a healthy balance of family values underpinned with exceptionally strong ethical and corporate values. It's a pleasure to feel valued and part of a truly global team.

    Cons

    The tyranny of distance and time zone differences plague all global companies, meaning that communication across geo's has historically been a weak spot, but is improving greatly through better use of internal technology of late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's make sure we can keep the brand fresh and relevant for the next generation of users that will be relying on AVG to keep their Data and Devices secure.
