Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Prague (Czech Republic)

I worked at AVG Technologies full-time for more than a year

Pros

- great salary one of the best in industry...
- great benefits, definitely above standard...free mobile, holiday contribution, free company car (based on Hay levels), retirement plan, ..just few to mention
- great office location with above standard service for employees in Prague, Czech rep.
- great products and good brand recognition around the world, looking great on your CV

Cons

- politics and fights between departments regarding strategies, resources, which are not based on real needs or external conditions but fights based on bad personal relationships among Top management
- big difference in culture and behavior between native English speaking employees and Czech speaking employees which then brings so many confusing situations
- in Sales department it was lots of yelling and mismanagement, lots of Senior Managers hired with no people management skills

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- please make a educational plan for middle management not just employees (including VP level) in order to improve - management of their own people
- please create a program in order to get western and eastern employees together and make cooperation more effective

    Pros

    - salary & benefits
    - office location
    - generous travel expense

    Cons

    - by far the worst politics in a company that I have ever seen. inter-departmental fights, land grabbing, territorial struggles, just to name a few
    - monetization takes priority
    - disorganize
    - the people...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    not just finding people with the right skill set but look for people who can work with others in driving the company forward

    Used to be great company, now tied up with processes, too fast growth and top management mistakes

    I worked at AVG Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great team, product used and appreciated by so many people globally and helping people (free product)

    Cons

    Disconnect between top management and personnel - primarily cultural (American vs Europe), too many incompetent hires in top mgmt mean too frequent changes in strategy
