    I worked at AVerMedia full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More autonomy for the US based company would help AverMedia to prosper in the US market better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management overall does a great job of leading our group and encouraging creativity and productivity, but it would be nice to see the managers leading by example when it comes to using administrative systems on a daily basis.

    I worked at AVerMedia

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Management 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.
