Pros

The environment and people are very friendly. Everything is casual and it is fairly easy to snag upper management for a few words if you need to. Great work life balance as deadlines seem to always be fudgable. Benefits are good and atmosphere makes you feel like family. Reduced priced catered lunch. Places to take a break if you need to stop thinking for a minute (volleyball court, basketball court, ping pong and fussball tables). You get to see a lot of new technology work with most of the major hardware manufacturers, which gives some variation in task and challenges. Even the individuals who had to be laid off (after a bad quarter) were assisted by HR for months afterwards to help them get new jobs with other companies.

Cons

Its a place to feel like family.. in saying that you are appreciated but not paid for. Compensation is on the lower end but reasonable as it seems to be pretty low stress. Being a mid sized company a bad quarter for sales could mean your job though. Also project management seems to be done pseudo by committee causing feature creep and delays to be the norm. Also it seems to be a company mantra that 80% quality is good enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Strive for true quality in what is produced on the Software side to keep up with the hardware quality. Keep on trucking with sales into the educational and foreign markets.

    Pros

    AMX is a wonderful place to work. Pay is good, benefits are great, and the environment is second to none. Time off is more than ample and managers are willing to work with the employees in special cases. All in all an ideal place to be employed. An excellent place if you want a stable, stress free job over the long term.

    Cons

    Smaller company, entrenched hierarchy of seniority. Limited opportunity for significant advancement. Raises aren't that great. There is no type of bonus or incentive structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so sales oriented and focused on a small number of players. Provide real paths for advancement and some form of structure where one can know how he will progress through the ranks.
