Pros

Benefit package is good, product has brand awareness with prospects which make conversations easier to have. Getting an interview and getting hired was a breeze.

Cons

Lack of management understanding of the business, customer, interest in serving the customer, lack of management communication to anyone but direct reports, no accountability amongst management team members. As another reviewed wrote, this business won't last long with this management team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the customers we have while working to acquire new ones, don't just ignore the ones we have. Gain some knowledge of the security & technology field we serve. Learn how to communicate and boost morale within a team. Hold management team members to high standards & enforce accountability.

    Pros

    Some great people here who really try hard. Excellent feedback on some of the technologies/products compared to larger AV vendors.

    Cons

    Getting anything done can be a real challenge. Morale does not seem to be a primary focus. Overall strategy seems to change frequently. Open cubicle set-up can be very loud/distracting. No privacy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication, follow up on promises made, provide mentorship where needed, encourage those who may be struggling and incent people financially.

    I worked at AVG Technologies

    Pros

    The organization has good benefits that dont cost the employees any money on a weekly payroll deduction. That being said there are very high co pays and not the best options. You get what you pay for.

    Cons

    The Management team is very weak and inexperienced. The technology enjoys good name recognition but there is absolutely no tech support available for the Sales Division. Upper Sales Management hired all of their friends and noone wants to work with the other departments. Very small office and very clicky. Very dysfunctional atmosphere. Dont expect them to be in US very long with this Management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that Sales drives revenue and that the US based Tech Support team Management is losing the Company hundreds of thousands in revenue. Treat employees with respect.
