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

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 an 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
