I have been working at AVG Technologies full-time (less than an year)

Pros

free lunch, nice location, neat ideas, smart people

Cons

politics galore, self interest running wild, not a lot of fun making money off search in a toolbar that is hard to get rid of. Not real rewarding to fight games in the office and with HQ all the time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut down the barriers and build packages and exits for people that don't encourage just quick wins, find new ways to make money other than toolbars users can't get rid of, hire some real management that cares

    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.

    Pros

    Past-paced, dynamic, interesting work, great leadership. Working on protecting consumers and kids online.

    Cons

    Recently gone public, which limits some of the edginess of the company. Government decisions will have impact and the company continue to innovate quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the company faster!!! Great innovation which needs to be showcased more.
