High tech environment with a human face too

Lead QA for Film Technologies (Current Employee)
Tewksbury, MA

ProsOutstanding product, still best in its class. Nice salary, and outstanding benefits. Upper-management was very smart, even if not always technically aware of what the editing products were being used for, they were smart enough to listen to those who did.

ConsAs Apple decided to declare war on Avid, and belts had to be tightened, management made increasingly poor decisions. Emulating other editing solutions for one, then letting go of the most industry-experienced staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring back the energy of a new company instead of resting on your laurels. Playing safe has helped Avid survive in name, though much less so in spirit.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you are considering working here, please read and believe the reviews. Unfortunately, I didn't

    Director (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Avid Technology full-time


    Pros: Not many come to mind. Good salaries and decent… Cons: "Incompetence" would be too kind a word to describe senior and executive management at Avid. Poor performance by management is consistently rewarded and reinforced. … Advice to Senior Management: Four years of this strategy clearly hasn't worked--it's time to pack up… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
