    I worked at PSAV full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunities for growth through training and mentoring. Solid support and structure for all employees. A good team environment with national resources and a positive attitude.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, but that is not unusual for the AV industry. Client-facing positions are generally thankless, but that's the nature of the work. Depending on position (non-salaried) overtime perks are decent.

    Pros

    Top three places to work in Central Florida region. Career Opportunities nation wide.

    As of late we have merged a few major companies into the organization. The culture of the company and communications have been in a slight gray area but improving nonetheless.

    Former Employee - PSAV Sales Manager - Hotel Divisions in Orlando, FL

    I worked at PSAV full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had a lot of flexibility with my supervisor. He made working there convenient and efficient. Projects can easily become fun and creative allowing the sales manager to be unique in what is proposed to the client.

    Cons

    Working with different managers who are too tight or have the wrong vision can easily make this an undesirable job. Workload is not evenly distributed throughout the year however it is not necessarily a con/ There is a clear busy and slow season so keep this in mind when calculating your commission checks!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have confidence in your team. No complaints really. A lot of positive changes have been made compared to my first and last year.
