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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, somewhat casual, some perks (Weight Watchers at Work, free flu shots, blood drives, smoking cessation programs, defensive driver programs, blood pressure/cholesterol screenings). Also, a primarily friendly staff. Lots of parties and celebrations including a Thanksgiving feast, fun holiday party, birthday cakes, Halloween costume contest, Ducks games, etc)

    Cons

    The title of my post says it all. All that is ever expected of the staff is mediocre work, so that is all they get. No one pushes themselves, probably because the pay is very low and bonuses are rare. The products are low end, so the employee discount is rarely used. Who needs aftermarket car stereos these days?? There is extreme favoritism here. So many staff members, from Presidents to VPs, to clerical and production, that are related in some way or another. Do they get special privileges and treatment? Absolutely. It's almost awkward that they can get away with so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely stop allowing family members to work in the same department, particularly with one overseeing the other. It makes for a tense and unfair work environment. Nepotism at its finest. Also, think about bumping up some salaries and providing more valuable feedback and training. Expect more of your employees and maybe they will work harder.

    Pros

    Great people (at least in the NY office). Senior Management were all very bright people and I learned a lot from.

    Cons

    Seems to be two camps, one in NY and the other in Indianapolis. Unless you were "born" into the Indy team, you are never accepted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More consideration should be given to the people affected when cutbacks are announced.

    Restful place before going to your second job. Easy work. Not challenging.

    I worked at Audiovox full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Low key work environment. Nice bosses, coworkers. The heating system works most days, but not so much in the repair department.

    Cons

    Working on hourly + incentive, not enough repair work due to sluggish retail sales. Lacking in positive communication, leadership, motivation by mgt & supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more timely innovative consumer electonics products to be competitive in the market. In the meantime keep expanding, diversifying, and buying other companies to keep the stockholders happy...even if no company products are actually manufactured in the U.S. and there is not enough work to justify still having a repair department.

    Pros

    opportunity to earn a paycheck...that's about it

    Cons

    If your not family your not in management. Very limited growth potential unless you marry into their family. Creativity is looked down on and you have to constantly kiss their asses to keep your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some new people in there with new ideas

    I worked at Audiovox full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Always expanding (acquiring brands) which helps them to keep growing. Some of the brands are not household names.

    Cons

    In desperate need of organizational structure and standard operating procedures. Management looks at the business year to year instead of two to three years ahead.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Audiovox

    Pros

    Worked on new and exciting products (as long as they lasted...)
    Mid-level management was very reasonable and recognized the efforts of the employees.

    Cons

    New projects get canceled because they wanted to make money right off the bat (no faith in long-term R&D).
    As a software engineer, don't expect to be working only on software (at one point in time you might find yourself spending several months doing QA type work!).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care and recognize the hard efforts of your employees. Have faith in bleeding edge technologies and in advanced research and development. Long-term you will see that the investment in this area will pay off.

    I worked at Audiovox

    Pros

    Decently sized company with a diverse group of employees.

    Cons

    Management not focused on their employees. It's a large company and you can get lost there pretty easily. They have reserved parking spots so if you are not a special person you have to park al lthe way in the back of the lot. And when it rains or snows it is really dangerous. Also they have a terrible lunchroom, it is dingy and it has an old TV in it that barely works. the bathrooms are really old and worn out, you would think they could spend a couple of bucks and fix it up a little bit, huh?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the little people
