Pros

Great opportunity for someone that is quick on their feet and research savvy. JP, Brian and Al were wonderful to work with and made you feel part of their extended families. Like many staffing firms, they tend to hire young fresh faces that recently graduated college... though there are exceptions to this. If you are an attractive woman or a strong/ friendly sales type of person, this is the place for you. You will earn close to 6 figures your second year.

Cons

If you're not quick on your feet or a go getter, you will fail. Not only here, but any staffing firm. If you are timid, shy, not online most of the time... you will fail. For someone who has other things going on in life, this industry as whole may not be good for you.

    I have been working at AVID Technical Resources full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have worked at AVID for the past year and roughly 8 months. I came in as a recruiter, and after 6 months I was promoted into sales. Why am I leaving? The staffing industry just isn't right for me. Could it be right for you? ABSOLUTELY, especially working for AVID.

    Pros:
    -Management: I sincerely mean it when I say you will not find more experienced, supportive and flexible management at any other staffing company. From day 1, it is obvious that they care about your success, and every action they take reflects that.
    -The team: I'll miss the team more than anything. Management hires people to fit into a particular culture, and that fosters an environment where your excited to come into work.
    -Opportunity: If you want to make money, AVID's the place to be. Base salary is decent, and there's an uncapped, tiered commission plan. Management works with you constantly to reach your goals, and success is only limited by how much effort you put it. Also, AVID is rapidly growing, so there is plenty of room for career advancement. They have some pretty aggressive expansion goals, and prefer to open new offices with current employees.
    -Culture: We worked hard, but played harder. Pretty much everyone here are friends, and that makes for an awesome time when we celebrate our success.
    -Location: You can't beat being 5 minutes from South Station.
    -Company Growth: AVID has grown for 10+ years straight, and this does not look like its slowing down. It's a very exciting time for the company.

    Cons

    AVIDs' Cons:
    -Long hours (8:30-5:30+). Honestly this is necessary. If you're looking for a cushy 9-5 this wouldn't be right for you. If you want to work hard and make a lot of money, then give them a call.

    Staffing Industry Cons:
    -Like I mentioned earlier, this industry is not right for everyone. Some people make careers out of it, even more people leave quickly. Suggestion: Do plenty of research before you interview, and during the interview ask as many questions as it takes to help you make the right decision. This is particularly tough for people right out of school. I would suggest asking them during an interview "Why is this industry not right for everyone" or "What are some negative aspects of this job/industry". Management is very up-front during interviews to set expectations, and they want to make sure its a good fit for YOU as well as them.
    -You control your destiny in this industry. Its possible to make 100k+ after year one, its just all about how much you put in. This can be good or bad!

    At the end of the day, taking a job with AVID was the best thing for me right out of school. I got a crash course in business and sales and made some good money. As an account manager, I basically ran my own business. You will most likely not be able to get this experience anywhere else.

    Pros

    The owners JP and Brian are the best CEO's I've had the privilege to work under. They constantly empower their team to do well both at work and in their daily lives. My experience at AViD can't be summed up by a simple review as this organization provided me with tools that go far beyond the IT recruiting industry.

    AViD provides their employees with the tools need to excel through training and real time experience.

    Had I not started my own company in a different industry I would still be working for AViD and very much enjoying it.

    - Great Work Culture
    - Fair Organization
    - Good Compensation packages
    - Great Work/Life Balance

    Cons

    If you don't like wearing a Shirt & Tie or being clean shaven then this is not the best environment for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Your organization is phenomenal from the top down.
