Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at AVG Technologies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great office and location. All amenities needed for comfort and tech culture.

Cons

I was constantly searching for structure around best practices. It was a struggle to find consistency in this area.

Advice to Management

Post-ipo; one would think best practices would be in place. Maybe it's changed since I left?

    I have been working at AVG Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Above average technologies, smart engineers.

    Cons

    Human resource is a big joke in this company, don't even know they are outsourced or contractors, HR don't reply any emails, they only contact you whenever they need something from you. Totally disconnected, one way communication.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees, they work LONG hours > 10-12 hours everyday. On call during the weekend also.

    I worked at AVG Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some very talented people Free lunch (SF office)

    Cons

    Fragmented compensation structure Perpetual state of crisis management, in a constant state of reaction Every hour of the day is always a fire level state of urgency Human Resources absent from the people, simply headcount, nothing more Shrinking revenue base with volatile short term search contracts (over 50% of revenues) Aloof senior management

    Advice to Management

    People are the asset, not the just the top and bottom lines. Build relationships with your employees. Focus on the long term future, not just quarter to quarter.
