I worked at AVG Technologies

Pros

The office relocated from Orlando, FL to Chelmsford, MA so I don't know if these still hold true: Excellent benefits, bonuses (depending on department), casual work environment, free software

Cons

They seem to relocate the office every time someone new is hired for the top position at the North American office. (every 1 to 2 years) It would make more sense for the person hired to relocate than for that person to move the office closer to him. Or maybe they could hire someone that is local to the current office - gee that's an idea.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Moving the office often makes the company look unstable and it's not right to force your employees to resign at a time when good jobs are so hard to find. For the sake of the current employees, I hope the company is going to keep the current office open for a long time so they don't get screwed like so many others did.

    I have been working at AVG Technologies as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -The people who work here are amazing
    -Opportunity to travel
    -Decent pay coming in
    -Fun atmosphere
    -Room to grow

    Cons

    -Needs more structure
    -You start on contract with no benefits and just get renewed with no promise of being permanent after set time
    -Pay doesn't go up from when you start, it seems to be stuck at one level with no increases despite reviews (team wide)
    -Pay has not even increased for inflation so every year we actually make less and less and especially as minimum wage goes up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Review our compensation procedures, we start off decent but after 2-3 years in a company and after reviews no one gets a pay increase and no increase for inflation either.
