Pros

Outstanding 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.

Cons

As 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 Management

Bring 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.

    Pros

    A large customer base with few legitimate competitors. An amazing group of talented employees who are passionate about the customer, and our product.

    Cons

    Company Growth: For those who are not seeing the writing on the wall, this company continues to reduce, reduce ,reduce. Senior Leadership not on the same page (or at least that’s the appearance). Work life balance is nonexistent. Perception is: You are replaceable. Leadership rules in fear. The line is at the door waiting to get out (leadership knows this and does not care). They are willing to replace knowledge and hard work for the next college kid who does not know any better. I have watched good people leave on their own. In this economy that should speak volumes!! If I could give a zero rating to the Executive Leadership at this company I would.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. You have done enough damage to the people who work hard for you. You have used the poor economy in your favor to keep the masses huddled in fear. You should be ashamed of yourself for the disgusting perception this once great company now has from its customers.
