    A pleasant place to work with a family like culture and atmosphere.

    Director Sales (Former Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsThe US company president is a fair and affable guy, with keen business acumen.

    ConsBeing headquartered in Taiwan the local operations will forever be reliant on off shore agendas and support.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore autonomy for the US based company would help AverMedia to prosper in the US market better.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible management made a great company go bad

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Milpitas, CA

    ProsRemote positions are available
    Good, company-paid benefits
    Well-respected within the educational technology industry
    Possibility of travel depending on your position

    ConsManagement shakeup has led to massive layoffs (around 10 percent of the company)
    No job security (see above)
    Little room for advancement in your position
    Low pay relative to competition
    Managers are so focused on numbers that they often forget about how to manage/treat people, except as "assets"
    Communication is extremely poor, from the top down

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to reassess the health of the company in terms of its people, not just the bottom line. They tend to view everything on a spreadsheet, and not everything can be viewed that way. Morale will continue to sink, and so will the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
