    I have been working at AVG Technologies

    Pros

    Base pay and benefits are good for me and for the role. Office location is nice for people that do not live in the city.

    Cons

    uncertain environment in the office. Productivity driven by fear and high goals to earn bonuses. Bonus is very hard to earn and seems not achievabl, no one is getting paid and no change is in sight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to drive results like a real manager and build team spirit thru something other than fear. People work harder if they understand what they are supposed to do and who they are supposed to be working with.

    I have been working at AVG Technologies

    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.
