    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.

    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 Management

    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.
