    (INTERN:) I was given specific tasks (daily, weekly, & monthly) and was given helpful lessons in order to be productive.

    I worked at Avid Technology as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most internships programs DO NOT compensate their interns, AVID does. This was extremely helpful and allowed me to afford gas, food, and essentials. Also, the "large" size of the program (around 30 students) allows for ideas to be shared and contacts to be made. In addition, the competitiveness of the program's interview process is helpful for the real world and real interviews. Another grat aspect fo the program was the managers flexsbility with intern's hours, days off, and any specific/unique requests; they realize that were not just there for the money and that were there to help and learn. Lastly, The employee's with whom I worked with were all extremely nice and patient while teaching me new skills; random employees would reach out to me to help them with projects and would teach me how to complete them effectively and efficiently. Oh, P.S.- There were some awesome field-trips!

    Cons

    None that I can think of, maybe just the commute from Salem, MA to Burlington, MA (30 min drive time was on avg. a 1-hour commute during rush hours) :-P

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Divide the field-trips up into smaller groups of interns, too many folks at one site was over-whelming!

    I worked at Avid Technology as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Avid brand has a wide range of interesting products to provide creative materials for, and a talented, collaborative-thinking team to work with.

    Cons

    I had a long commute, which was at times challenging due to the high volume of traffic in Burlington, which has a high concentration of companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain highly talented employees who are passionate about your brand.

    Pros

    This company has a good benefits package. They offer multiple benefits to when you first start. Lower level employees are great and hard working.

    Cons

    Leadership needs much needed training. Be wary of your contract. Learned the hard way that this company does not keep true to it's word and will leave you wishing you had sought work elsewhere. One day notice lay offs. No job security. Please make sure you have another job potential before working for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This Management needs to stay true to their word. Make decisions and stick with them. Realize that you are hiring individuals who put trust in your company and learn not to let them down.

    Pros

    Great people at the company, got to learn many different areas of Finance during the internship. Always felt as if the work that I was doing was important to the company.

    Cons

    I didn't have very many issues with the job, but the work can get somewhat repetitive. There's a decent chance that you will work on the same project from 9 to 5.
