Former Employee - Sales in Chelmsford, MA
Former Employee - Sales in Chelmsford, MA

I worked at AVG Technologies full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Excellent Benefits - Health and Dental and 401K. Probably the best in the industry.
Excellent people - Will remain in contact with numerous former employees
Good brand recognition - potential customers know about AVG. Above average technology. Has a good/great product.

Cons

With the company recently becoming public, only corporate got to take advantage, no rewards for the employees.
Employees worried about the daily phone calls then building relationships with customers and long term success.
Little to none career advancement
High turnover rate and managers from the UK/Czech lack the knowledge of the US market

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The product has excellent brand recognition, decide whether you want to give the product away or focus on the business market.
Offer Employee stock options to further support employee success.
Work on employee morale and customer satisfaction and have corporate understand the US market.

Doesn't Recommend
