I worked at AMX full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Cool products, nice people, good benefits and competitive salary. Office in Richardson is quite modern and appears to be a good environment.

Cons

If you're working for a regional office expect conflicting direction and ever-changing priorities coming out of HQ. A lot of spark, but no fire (strong ambition, no direction, limited execution - believes it can regain market-share w/o innovation but by pure cult of personality. Senior Management changes often as executives quickly fall out of favor - this accelerates directional changes and often shuffles priorities!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be CONSISTENT and define whom and what you want to be already! Innovate and drop some of the legacy products and software you've been carrying along for over TWO DECADES NOW! Decide what markets you honestly want to compete in, and cut the cord/rip off the band-aid in markets to which you are obviously paying lip service (home automation). Finally, decide what's more important: honestly in evaluating your core competencies or brown-nosing your way on to job sites / into all internal discussions!

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits, casual atmosphere. Overall the best place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    There are very few, some favoritism, like all companies. Some unrealistic goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open minded about what people do & not if you like them personally.

    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.
