    Pros

    I believe that PSAV was the best company that I ever worked for because of the people and my managers. Leadership allowed me to think for myself and develop my own process to succeed. I miss my customers and co-workers very much and stay in touch with them now that I've moved to a larger company.

    Cons

    I understand that the roles in the field are very demanding, but don't shy away from calling your manager or human resources - they are there to be a resource for you! They would be happy to help!

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to train your staff. Even if it's busy season, it will pay off for you in the short and long term.

    Pros

    Keeps you busy. When full time, you get to indulge in the benefits and consistent work flow. Good pay and the opportunities to grow and become a true A/V professional are ample.

    Cons

    Gear can be out of date. Management care about their numbers, not the techs that do everything on the floor

    Advice to Management

    Have respect for the guys that stay late to make sure the group you sold that microphone too actually gets it and is pleased with it. Without the floor techs the sales team and uper managment is useless

    Pros

    Multiple locations easy to transfer to other states/countries, lots of mobility within the company.

    Cons

    People that have been with the company for a long time but not showing improvement or drive don't get fired or moved bringing moral down at some location. Being in the events industry your work/home life suffers. Hours are long and inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your over achievers and find the people that are hurting your moral and address the issue. If someone hasn't been promoted since they started find the problem and fix it.

    Pros

    A fast growing company, with a high energy customer focused culture. They have a genuine commitment to develop their people...going to be an exciting place to be in the coming years...Thats why I am here.

    Cons

    Growing pains....some our our policies are no longer relevant given our size and scope

    Advice to Management

    Keep building the brawn of a large company, while keeping the heart and soul of a small company.

    Pros

    They are extremely supportive when it comes to providing continuous training for their managers either in - person or via the company intranet - if you have the drive for self-education, you have all of the knowledge you need at your disposal. The team atmosphere is wonderful and I feel very supported in my desire to continue to grow with the company. The benefits and HR team are great! Reimbursements too!

    Cons

    Lower rates of pay for beginning sales managers
